Update: As of August 2017, we now offer a Virtual Office service.
After forming a Delaware company with Harvard Business Services, Inc., many of our clients inquire about mail forwarding service to handle incoming mail for their company. This service does not establish a physical presence in Delaware, so it does not trigger filing Delaware annual tax returns. It also exempts you from paying many of the Delaware taxes required by Delaware Resident Businesses.
Your company’s address is your company’s name with our Lewes Delaware address. There are no P.O. boxes or suite numbers. You have a real physical Delaware address is our corporate offices. When we receive correspondence for your company, we just forward it along. Our various levels offer weekly or daily response. We also offer a service where we will open, scan and email your important mail to you immediately, if you require.
Mail Forwarding vs. Registered Agent Service: The mail forwarding service is optional, and an add-on to our Delaware Registered Agent Services. The Mail Service is for clients who wish to use our address as their mailing address, receive mail at our Delaware headquarters, and have us process their mail and send it to them. Our Mail Forwarding service is offered ONLY to our Registered Agent clients.
The registered agent service is a separate service. It is a requirement that all Delaware formed companies have a physical address in Delaware for the purpose of receiving any legal documents or service of process from the Secretary of State. If we receive anything for your company from the Secretary of State, we will forward to the contact address that you give to us. Mailing all your OFFICIAL mail from the Delaware Secretary of State is included in the Registered Agent Service.
With the mail forwarding service, clients will use our address for any mailing purposes. Clients will often use our address on business cards, flyers, etc. There are different levels of service depending on the amount of mail you expect us to receive. We offer strict confidentiality by not offering your information out to the public.
