The Law Office of Carey Thompson provides registered agent services to business clients in Texas. Unlike a generic corporation, we recognize the weight of this role; as lawyers, we are held to a higher standard by the State Bar of Texas. When you designate us as your registered agent, you can rest assured that any legal and governmental notices pertaining to your business will be handled professionally and expediently.
Do I need Registered Agent services?
In Texas, businesses that register with the state as legal entities, such as Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), partnerships, and corporations, are required to have a registered agent — a responsible third-party designated to receive service of process notices, notifications from the Secretary of State, and official government notifications (e.g. tax forms, notice of lawsuits), on behalf of the business.
The registered agent must have a business address in the state and be available to receive such notices during normal business hours. It is important to note that a business cannot act as its own agent, although it is possible for it to name an employee to act in this capacity. This may not be a wise choice, however; and acting as your own registered agent may not be in the best interests of your business either.
Relying on the Law Office of Carey Thompson to act as your registered agent provides a number of benefits. First, you will be better able to focus on business operations. In addition, you will have peace of mind knowing we’ll be here to receive important documents if/when you are out of the office or traveling for business or pleasure. Finally, utilizing our registered agent service allows you to receive confidential information free from the purview of clients and employees.
Flat Fee Billing
Registered agent services at the Law Office of Carey Thompson are based on a flat fee:
- $99 per year, billed annually
This means you will not pay additional forwarding fees, end of year fees or cancellation fees. Any applicable change fees are included in the first year’s payment and your price will never go up as long as we are your registered agent. Period.
What registered agent services does the Law Office of Carey Thompson provide?
For over a decade, the business leaders throughout Texas have chosen the Law Office of Carey Thompson for dependable registered agent services, including:
- Accepting mail and legal notices for LLCs, corporations and other business entities
- Timely access to all service of process, government notices and other important documents
- Business filing services, including certificates of formation (LLCs, corporations), application for registrations, and annual filings with the Secretary of State
- Notifications of filing deadlines (e.g. Texas Franchise Tax Report)
- Annual invoicing — no automatic charges
In short, we help local Texas businesses remain in good standing with the Secretary of State and also work with out-of-state businesses looking to register in Texas.
What happens if my business doesn’t have a registered agent in Texas?
Ultimately, requiring a registered agent protects the public by giving individuals a legal means to notify a business about a complaint or dispute. The Secretary of State may terminate a domestic company that fails to designate a registered agent. The state will also revoke a foreign entity’s authority to do business here if it does not have a registered agent in Texas.
