Alabama Registered Agent

What is an Alabama Registered Agent?

An Alabama registered agent is an individual or business legally appointed on a company’s formation documents to accept service of process on behalf of the company should it be sued. What does that mean? Basically this: an Alabama registered agent receives official mail and notices on behalf of a business in Alabama. We’re the legal contact for businesses that appoint us to receive their official documents (tax and annual report notices) from the state, as well as legal materials like lawsuits. Once we receive a notice for a business, we scan and upload the document to their online account within minutes of receipt. When you hire us as your Alabama registered agent, you can rest assured all your documents will be received and uploaded instantly.

Why You Need an Alabama Registered Agent:

All corporations and LLCs doing business in Alabama are required by state law to appoint a registered agent in Alabama. Alabama registered agents ensure the Secretary of State and state courts have a reliable way of contacting a corporation or LLC. An Alabama registered agent is necessary to maintain compliance in the state and remain in good standing.

Can I Be My Own Registered Agent in Alabama?

Yes, you can. In fact, most small business owners in Alabama act as their own registered agent. However, we’d argue that for $49 a year, hiring us as your Alabama registered agent will make your life as a business owner a lot easier. We are local and understand the ins and outs of Alabama business filings. Here’s how hiring us as your registered agent benefits you:

  • Reduced paperwork
    We keep all your notices and legal documents in one secure online account and send you notifications when action is required. That way, you have a lot less paperwork to keep track of and can focus on running your business.
  • Enhanced Privacy
    If you list yourself as your business’ registered agent, you’ll likely need to list your home address as your business’ point of contact. If you do that, you’ll end up with a lot more solicitors and junk mail. Plus, your personal contact information will be more vulnerable to data hackers and spammers scraping the Secretary of State’s website. When you hire us, we list our address and contact information—not yours.
  • We Provide a Business Address
    Web-based companies sometimes face problems when dealing with the bureaucracy of maintaining an online business that has no actual physical address. If an Internet company doesn’t want to list someone’s home address as the business address, they can hire us and use our address.
  • Business Schedule
    An Alabama registered agent is required to be available to receive notifications at their physical place of work during normal business hours. If you don’t keep normal business hours, this could lead to trouble. We’re at our office from 8 to 5 every weekday, so there’s no problem accepting service of process during normal business hours, all year round.
  • Doing Business in Multiple States
    In each state where your business operates, you’ll need to register with that state, and in every state you register, you need a registered agent with a physical location in that state. For this reason, many business owners choose to hire registered agent services in order to comply with state regulations and to be sure all important notices to the business are kept in one place, with their registered agent.

Alabama Registered Agent Requirements:

According to Alabama state code § 10A-1-5.31, all Alabama registered agents, whether an individual or a business, must:

  • Have a physical address in Alabama where they can accept and receive service of process (notice of a lawsuit).
  • Be open during business hours.
  • Accept documents on your behalf and get them to you.

A commercial Alabama registered agent should also provide tools that help you maintain your company.

With Our Alabama Registered Agent Service:

All service of process and important documents are uploaded into your online account immediately, fully scanned. It’s that simple. You’ll be able to log in to our database to see any documents we receive on your behalf. On top of that, you’ll receive timely reminders to file your annual report and get an email at the end of your service asking you if you’d like to renew.

Though we’re registered agents first and foremost, we offer a range of services to help your business succeed. We provide business formation services for LLCs and corporations, as well as registration for foreign businesses looking to conduct business in Alabama.

Plus, we offer business support services, including our Alabama Business Presence package (website, email, phone) FREE for 90 days. You’ll get to choose your own domain name, which will be FREE for one year.
