The appointment and maintenance of an in-state registered agent is required

Known for its stunning forests, coastline, and delicious lobster, Maine has lots ot offer entrepreneurs. With a relatively low individual income tax rate and thriving small business community (small businesses make up 99% of the state's business), Maine is a great place to start a business. However, doing business in Maine requires compliance with many federal, state, and local requirements.

Your registered agent must handle essential documents (such as annual reports and service of process) correctly and deliver them swiftly to the right people. CT Corporation’s experience and expertise remove that worry from your shoulders.

I strongly recommend CT as a reliable corporate compliance partner.
