The State of Maryland requires that all companies doing business within its borders designate a registered agent in Maryland who can receive service of process on the company’s behalf. That registered agent, as known as a “resident agent” must maintain a physical address in Maryland where the agent can be reached during normal business hours.
The term “service of process” refers to the many legal filings and notices that the state sends to a company and can include everything from tax documents to a notice of a lawsuit being filed against the company. It is imperative that the Maryland registered agent who is handling your company’s service of process is experienced and trustworthy and will promptly notify you about all important documents concerning your company. Having a dependable registered agent ensures that your business complies with all state regulations and maintains its good standing with the state of Maryland. This frees you to channel precious time and energy into developing your company.
