We take our job very seriously. Here’s a little bit of what we do for you:
Absolutely. You just need to be comfortable listing your home address, where you work, and your personal name on your documents. A big reason we are in business is our clients don’t want to show their competitors or vendors their history or show instability as they move from office to office. When they just list our address, it never has to change as their business grows.
Yes, it can be. But if you hire us, we can dramatically minimize your exposure.
In Georgia, when you file your Articles of Organization or Articles of Incorporation, you must list the name and address of your Organizer/Incorporator. This information will be part of the public record.
If you hire Georgia Registered Agent LLC, however, we will prepare your documents for you. We will act as your Organizer/Incorporator. This will keep your personal information out of the public record. We also will list our registered office address for all addresses required on the corporate registry to keep your home or office address offline.
The registered agent must be open during business hours and have an accessible physical address listed on the corporate registry. The registered agent must accept mail and legal notices for every company it is listed as the registered agent for. Anyone sending your company a letter to whom is listed as the Georgia Registered Agent is legal proof that you’ve been notified. It’s a very important role. And we take it very seriously.
The best way to file in Georgia is online. You can file almost every business document online, and online filings are processed almost immediately. You can mail business filings to the Georgia Corporation Division's office, along with your check payment.Learn More
