More Information

Why Do I Need a Registered Agent?

As required by Maryland State Law, Maryland Code § 2-10, all business entities registered with the state are required to appoint a registered agent. This statute was created to ensure that legal notices could be delivered reliably to businesses. Your business formation filing will not be approved by the Secretary of State without a registered agent.

How Do I Change My Registered Agent in Maryland?

  1. Hire us first. You must appoint a Maryland registered agent when filing your Articles of Incorporation.

  2. If you file without a registered agent, the Secretary will reject your application.

  3. When you hire Legit My Biz, all of your documents will be available in your online account as well as filing instructions on how to list us as your Registered Agent. Our goal is that you’ll have an easier time forming your company yourself after hiring us as your registered agent.

  4. Rest easy. We’re along for the ride and ready to make sure you don’t get lost on the way.

What Do Georgia Registered Agents Do?

  • We stay open during regular business hours to accept notices and mail on your behalf.

  • We contact you when we receive mail, notifications, and processes.

  • We help keep your personal home and office address off of permanent public records.

Can I Be My Own Registered Agent in Maryland?

  • A domestic LLC

  • You cannot list the company name you are forming or registering as its own registered agent

Is My Information Made Public After I File?

​Yes, it can be. But if you hire us, we can dramatically minimize your exposure. In Maryland, when you file your 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 Legit My Biz, 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.

Why Hire Legit My Biz?

As your Maryland Registered Agent, we make it our priority to be available when you need us. We’re open Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM. This way, your business can receive mail and legal notices. It’s a vital role. And one we take very seriously.
