Best for?

Harbor Compliance’s registered agent service is ideal for any LLC or corporation that is required to designate a registered agent with its state. Harbor Compliance serves as your registered agent so you never have to worry about closing your office during business hours or having your agent go on vacation.

The service is very easy to use and there is no charge for having your legal documents scanned and made available online through Harbor Compliance’s secure web portal. So, it’s not a problem if your business is in a different city from the Harbor Compliance office in your state.

What Does Harbor Compliance Provide?

Most LLCs and other businesses are required by states’ departments of state to have a registered agent. This individual is expected to be available at a specified address during business hours to receive legal documents and to be served if a lawsuit arises.

While you can choose to designate an individual within your business as your registered agent, your business will fall out of compliance if that individual takes a day off or if your business closes for a day. Harbor Compliance solves this problem by enabling you to outsource your registered agent to a state-certified legal services provider. That way, your business is always in compliance with registered agent requirements and you never have to worry about paying a fee to change registered agents if your business moves offices. 

Harbor Compliance offers an online portal where you can view the address and details for the company’s office in your state, which serves as the address for your business’s registered agent. The company has offices in all 50 states, although Harbor Compliance does occasionally work with third-party registered agent services without notice.

You can set a primary contact in the online portal who is notified by email when legal documents are served to your business. You can then pick up your documents anytime or have them scanned and made available securely through the online portal at no extra charge.

Pricing Plans for Registered Agent Service

Harbor Compliance charges $99 per year for every state in which you need a registered agent. You can sign up for an annual plan, or get a 5%-10% discount by signing up for 2, 3, 5, or 10 years. There are no additional costs or fees regardless of how many documents your business receives or sends.
