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

Thinking of doing business in North Carolina? The Tar Heel state is home to thriving cities like Raleigh and Charlotte, beautiful scenery, and a highly-educated workforce. Known for its universities, the state is becoming a growing hub for high tech, healthcare, insurance, and the financial services industry. The state boasts low corporate and unemployment insurance tax rates, as well as a high success rate among entrepreneurs -- 81%, survive that difficult first year. Despite this, doing business in North Carolina requires compliance with many federal, state, and local requirements. State laws are highly complex. And, state and legal notices are too important to risk getting lost in the shuffle. Any misstep can be disastrous.

The right Registered Agent is a partner in your success. A reliable professional Registered Agent gives you peace of mind that you won’t miss a critical filing and endanger your business’ good standing.
