Alabama Registered Agent Services
Under Alabama law, every business entity formed or registered with the Secretary of State must designate and continuously maintain a registered agent and registered office.
What Alabama Registered Agents Do:
Every Alabama registered agent must maintain a physical address in Alabama, known as the registered office address. This is where the registered agent receives service of process and official documents on behalf of the business.
The Alabama registered agent is the point of contact between the state and your business. When you have been sued or the state sends you some legal notice, the registered agent is responsible for making sure you get that information, fast. Registered Agents Inc. takes this responsibility as your Alabama registered agent seriously. Whether you are obtaining our Alabama registered agent services for your business or for your clients, each of our accounts is handled with equal amounts of regard, security, and care.

Why Alabama Registered Agents are Important:
Having a registered agent with a physical address is key to doing business in any given state. The state expects that when you do business there, you will have a reliable address where someone can deliver a lawsuit, tax notification, or other highly sensitive mail for your Alabama LLC or corporation. Having an Alabama registered agent you trust also benefits you. If your Alabama registered agent is incompetent or inefficient at delivering notifications to you, lawsuits can proceed and default judgments could be made against your business without you ever knowing it. That’s why retaining the services of a highly qualified registered agent like Registered Agents Inc. really matters.
Registered Agents Inc. has also created a service that is more than the fulfillment of a statutory requirement—we can make managing your business easier.

Alabama Registered Agent Requirements
To become an Alabama registered agent you must be either an individual who is a resident of Alabama or a domestic or foreign entity that is registered to do business in Alabama. An Alabama registered agent must also maintain a street address (registered office) in Alabama, where you can accept and sign for service of process and official mail during normal business hours. A mail box or phone service is not sufficient. The registered agent is required to physically be at an address Alabama, ready to accept notifications and service of process throughout the working day.
If you meet these requirements, you could list your own name or business name as a registered agent. While your business may be its own Alabama registered agent and office, it is certainly not required to do so. We recommend using a professional registered agent that gives you security and reliability.
