Do I Need a Delaware Address to Incorporate there?

By Andrew Millman Tuesday, April 8, 2014

You do not need a Delaware address to incorporate there. This is one of the most common misconceptions about forming a Delaware corporation or LLC. You do not need to live in Delaware, nor do you need a Delaware address to form a Delaware company. In fact, many of our clients have never even visited the state of Delaware.

The state of Delaware merely requires all Delaware corporations and LLCs to maintain a Registered Agent who physically resides in Delaware. As part of their service, the Registered Agent provides the address you need.

What is your Registered Agent responsible for? Here's an excerpt from one of our blog articles:

"A Registered Agent is the liaison between your company and the state of Delaware's Division of Corporations. We are responsible for receiving and forwarding government notices and legal documents to our clients in a timely fashion. Some examples of documents received and forwarded are franchise tax reports, late notices, and void notices from the secretary of state, and service of process for legal actions or proceedings against your company."

As your Delaware Registered Agent, Harvard Business Servcies, Inc. is required by law to have on file the name and address of the company's contact person for correspondence purposes. This contact person and business address is for our records only and is not made public. The address of your company can be anywhere in the world.

Harvard Business Services, Inc. offers Registered Agent service at the best price in the industry—just $50 per year—guaranteed to remain fixed at $50 per year for the life of the company as long as you keep your company in good standing, with on-time payments. You can pay for multiple years in advance and save even more. Pre-pay and get two years of Registered Agent service for $90, or three years for $125.
