Choosing a Registered Agent
When you decide to form an LLC in the USA, you are required to receive service through a Registere Agent. In this case, there are a few options and each Registered Agent offers different prices and services.
The list and prices of the most reliable companies I recommend to you are below. You can also get detailed information by clicking on the company names for individual review articles for each Registered Agent.
* An EIN is a free number given to everyone on the IRS. You can fill in a form called SS4 yourself and send it to the IRS, but it is said that individual applications have been answered too late recently. For this reason, Registered Agents offer you this service a little faster, for a fee. In order to avoid problems, you can pay this fee from the very beginning and get the service through the Registered Agent.
** Annual service fee and company setup fee are calculated based on Northwest Registered Agent. Prices will change when you choose a different Registered Agent. Under the table, you can find the price list of Registered Agent companies.
*** In America, the virtual address is not included in most Registered Agent packages and you pay extra virtual address fee every year. When you receive service through the Nortwest Registered Agent, the virtual address is included in the package and you do not need to pay an extra annual virtual address.
