How to Get the Perfect Massachusetts Registered Agent

Choose a Registered Agent

When you’re incorporating a business in Massachusetts the state requires you to have a Registered Agent.

Basically this means your Massachusetts Registered Agent is a person or entity who is legally allowed to accept notifications and legal documents from a state office on behalf of you or your business.

Whoever you choose to be your Registered Agent will be responsible for receiving all tax and legal documents, annual report forms, and more.


Massachusetts Registered Agent Restrictions & Requirements

Keep in mind that there are certain restrictions on who can actually be a registered agent for your business.

Your registered agent in Massachusetts is required to have a physical street address in the state and be available during business hours. This can be you or someone in your business.


Your Options for Finding a Massachusetts Registered Agent

File Annual Reports & Publication Requirements

Before you choose a Registered Agent or Registered Agent service for your business, do your research. One very important thing that you have to remember is credibility. A Registered Agent must always be efficient because they will be at the forefront of your business.

Aside from this, you also have to look into if a Registered Agent has a legitimate working office because legal documents are usually delivered at 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday so you have to make sure that the agent you choose has this. These are just some suggestions, at the end of the day, the decision is up to you.
