Registered Agent Services

A registered Agent is a person or company with a mailing address (not PO box) in the state your company is registered who can receive service of process and governmental notices on behalf of your company. This is not a physical address for your company.

Client understands and acknowledges that purchasing the services herein are subject to the following:

Important Anonymous LLC Disclaimers

  • Anonymity means ownership information is not published by the appropriate State department where LLC’s are registered, and is subject to the laws of the state in which the LLC is filed.
  • Other state entities (i.e. taxation department) and the federal government (i.e. the IRS) may require disclosure of ownership information, although you should check to verify such disclosure is confidential.
  • You may be legally required to register your Anonymous LLC in your home state or in other states where you do business. Please consult with your CPA or a relevant business lawyer in the jurisdictions where you live and/or where you are doing business.
  • L4SB makes no representation as to whether you are “transacting business” in your home state, or any other state. If you decide you’re transacting business in state other than the state where your LLC is formed, talk to L4SB to learn about options to preserve your anonymity.
  • Attorney-client privilege and confidentiality is not absolute. If L4SB is subpoenaed by a court or state entity of competent jurisdiction, L4SB will have to respond although L4SB will coordinate with you and/or your local attorney (as permissible by law).

Frequently Asked Questions About this Service

There are no limitations on where you can or cannot open a bank account, no matter where the LLC is formed. Please note, at a legal level, there really is no such thing as an “Anonymous LLC.” These are normal LLC’s, but filed carefully in a state that doesn’t require disclosure of ownership information. When seeking a bank account, simply request a commercial bank account for a LLC.

Make sure the bank account is owned by the LLC, and that you are simply a signatory.

The bank will want to know who you are — there’s really no getting around this — but the banks are supposed to keep signatory information confidential.

“Member Managed” means the LLC is simply managed by the Members. All Members have similar powers to run day-to-day operations of the business, and the Operating Agreement will specify what powers the Members have that do and do not require a vote.

“Manager Managed” means the day-to-day operations of the LLC is managed by a Manager. The Manager has certain powers, as specified in the Operating Agreement, that do not need the approval of the Members. Note that Members will always have some powers reserved to a vote, such as assigning a new Manager, or dissolving, or bringing on new Members. A Manager does not need to be a Member, but one or more Members can certainly be the Manager.

Typically, I advise clients that it’s often best to go with a “Member Managed” LLC unless one of two things is present:

  • One or more Members will run day-to-day operations, and other Members will not (i.e. silent investors, for example). It’s often convenient to make as Managers the day-to-day operating Members, so they can run the business without having to always call a vote.
  • One Member is really the “one in charge.” This Member can be assigned as the Manager, and have additional powers assigned to him or her.

This is often a very complicated subject that is often ignored. If you have questions, please contact us.

No. The Registered Agent is a specific person or entity, available at a specific address, where service of process and legal notices can be sent (think sheriff showing up with a summons).

This means you want a Registered Agent who:

  1. has a valid office that is staffed during normal business hours (i.e. be careful with those “cheap registered agents” you find on the Internet),
  2. knows something about the law, and knows how to properly accept service (i.e. again, be careful with registered agents who are not attorneys), and
  3. can convey some level of attorney-client privilege and confidentiality. This means the staff will be properly trained not to give out sensitive information, thereby better protecting your anonymity.

A Registered Agent can simply scan in your material, and email it to you when received.

This is different from a “Physical Mailing Address.” Such an address would can receive actual mail, perhaps checks, credit cards and more. These things cannot be scanned. They must be physically handled and relayed. They don’t have to be staffed the same way a Registered Agent’s address needs to be staffed. Such addresses also have an impact with Google and other search engines, which are becoming ever increasingly smart and will “flag” addresses that are shared by too many businesses.

We receive this question a lot, despite our attempt to be price competitive with “the rest”. It seems every time we lower our price, the competition lowers theirs even further.

At the end of the day, we’re an actual law firm. Your questions are answered by licensed and trained professionals. We are able to extend attorney-client privilege and confidentiality to our clients. Our business/activities is/are governed by the professional rules of conduct for each state we’re licensed in, and we carry professional liability insurance. We have licensed professionals dealing with the registered agent’s office.

Regularly, we fend off private investigators, police investigators and more. Our people have the training to maximize the legal protections available to our clients.

So, we’re not the cheapest game in town. The “other guys” are trying to sell formations, we’re trying to sell relationships. There are many things we won’t do that the “other guys” will do, because we’re worried about our clients’ long-term success and we’re concerned with minimizing our clients’ long-term liability.

We can provide a range of services for our clients, where forming the anonymous LLC is just the first step. This includes contracts, switching ownership of real property, resolving disputes, trademarks, and much, much more. You can do things things with this firm, relying on our training, experience, professionalism and confidentiality.
