We provide quality registered/statutory/resident agent service in all of the United States.

Some facts you should know about a registered agent in Maryland:

"registered agent," "statutory agent" and "resident agent" are three names for the same thing: an agent authorized by a company to receive documents and notices. (Since the three terms all refer to a Resident of the state acting as an AGENT, we have coined the term "ragent" to include them all).

Your Maryland registered agent must be either (1) a domestic company formed under Maryland corporate law (2) a foreign corporation authorized to transact business in Maryland or (3) an adult individual who resides in Maryland. Because neither an LLC (limited liability company) formed under Maryland law nor a foreign LLC is specifically mentioned as eligible to be a registered agent, an inquiry to the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation(SDAT) office is recommended if your agent is a limited liability company. The SDAT in Maryland has responsibility for corporate regulation as does the secretary of state in most other states.

It is important to note that a Maryland resident agent must have a Maryland street address rather than a post office box and that the registered agent must sign a consent to be resident agent and file it with the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation.

APPOINTING A NEW MARYLAND REGISTERED AGENT

We welcome newly formed companies, as well as companies previously formed who presently have an overpriced resident agent, or a registered agent whose quality and dependability as a point of contact may be open to question.

If you are forming a new company yourself (or qualifying your company to do business in a new state yourself) and are interested in our registered agent services, just check the first box when you order online. (If you want legal assistance in the formation process, you may want to contact 4inc.com, which is also affiliated with the Inc.Link® network of corporate professionals.)

If you are an existing company which desires to change your registered agent in Maryland, you may do so at any time by filing a resolution to change your registered agent with SDAT, the Maryland agency charged with regulation of companies. The Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation (SDAT) is the counterpart of the secretary of state in most other states.

When you order online, we take care of filling out this form and sending it to you for signature. Upon its return (signed) to us we will take care of filing this form, and we will also pay the fee which must be paid to the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation to make the change.

If you would prefer to sign the form first and send it to us so that we may complete it and file it with the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation, along with the filing fee, use the corporation change of Maryland registered agent form at http://www.dat.state.md.us/sdatweb/ch_addr.PDF. Just sign it and get it to us and we will take care of the rest.

If your present agent is prepaid for a period of time, you can instruct us not to make the change until that period of time has expired.
