Best Registered Agent Service

How do you decide which Delaware Registered Agent to choose? If cost and service are important to you, the information below will help you compare the different deals offered by the top four Delaware Registered Agents.

The costs are divided into initial formation fees and annual (recurring) Delaware Registered Agent fees. Some Registered Agents hide the state filing fees from you until the end of the formation process so it appears as if they are only charging you a small service fee to form your company.

Other Registered Agents add shipping fees at the end of the formation process, without warning, to boost their prices. At Harvard Business Services, Inc., we gladly disclose all the actual costs to form a company at the lowest possible rate, so you’ll know exact price as soon as you start the incorporation process.

Many other companies increase their Delaware Registered Agent annual fee over time or include only six months of service in their incorporation packages. Once those six months are up, they'll charge you much more.
