Maryland Registered Agent Requirements
All corporations and LLCs formed or registered to do business in Maryland are required to appoint a Maryland registered office and a Maryland registered agent. Maryland frequently refers to the registered agent as a “resident agent” this is a different statutory term with the same meaning.
What is a Maryland Registered Agent?
Maryland registered agents are a person or entity designated by a company to receive official communications on its behalf. Most Maryland registered agents are companies in the business of being a registered agent. Others are simply individual residents of the State of Maryland. All registered agents in Maryland must have a physical presence in the state and occupy the registered office address during normal business hours to accept service of process on behalf of companies listing that person or company as their resident agent. That means registered agents cannot have a P.O. box as their registered office; they must have a physical address where they can accept official notices and mail.
Why You Need a Maryland Registered Agent:
You need to know when someone notifies you. When you create a corporation or LLC, you are creating an entity without the ability to communicate on its own. A registered agent in Maryland accepts communication on behalf of a Maryland business entity and ensures those responsible for the entity are made aware of the notice or service of process the agent has received on entity’s behalf.
The requirement to designate a Maryland registered agent may seem like an inconvenience, but you’re forming a company; a company that people might have problems with and may get sued someday. It’s important to have a reliable way to be notified when someone needs to contact you with a legal problem or tax notice. That’s why Maryland registered agents are important.
Change Your Maryland Registered Agent
Changing registered agents in Maryland is a straightforward process. All that is required is to file the Notice of Change of Resident Agent form with the Maryland Secretary of State. Make sure you have the appropriate form for your entity type (corporation, LLC, etc.) The form costs $25 to file. The change of resident agent takes at least 8 weeks to be processed, unless you pay an additional $50 for 7 day processing.
How to Become a Registered Agent in Maryland
The main requirement of being a registered agent in Maryland is that you have a physical address in Maryland where you can accept physical mail from process servers.
