Choose the Best Delaware Registered Agent
Agents and Corporations, Inc. (IncNow®) is an industry-leading Delaware Commercial Registered Agent and incorporation service. It has been operating since 1974.
IncNow is a family-owned and attorney-operated Registered Agent that offers fast, easy, and reliable service at a fraction of the cost of many other Delaware Commercial Registered Agents.
Why is a Registered Agent required?
Delaware requires all registered companies to name a statutory Registered Agent with a Delaware address to serve as a physical presence in the state where the company can be reached if a lawsuit needs to be served in Delaware. It is a door in Delaware where a sheriff or process server can knock and personally serve legal papers, such as notice of a lawsuit. Anyone over 18 can receive service of the lawsuit at this address for proper service. Although this centuries old concept of humans handing off papers within the borders of the state is old fashioned, it is designed to ensure proper notice. The Registered Agent office in the state of incorporation is a proper location for service of any lawsuit, no matter where in the world the lawsuit is initiated against that company. It is also the agent for the company’s managers, officers, and directors.
It is possible for a Delaware resident to self-appoint using a residential address as the Registered Agent. However, that means the address will be publicly listed, which is often not desired because you may get unwelcome visitors at your residence. Often people move and fail to file a $50 Change of Agent form with Delaware, resulting in the buyer of their house or new tenant in the apartment getting served or having notices returned to sender.
More importantly, the company risks having a default judgment against it if (1) no one is present at the address during normal business hours to be served the lawsuit or (2) your spouse, housekeeper, or family member fails to give you the summons and complaint, notice of the lawsuit, and you fail to respond within the time allowed.
Instead, most business owners inside and outside of Delaware prefer a more reliable solution and use a Delaware Commercial Registered Agent such as IncNow.
In addition to Registered Agent and incorporation service, IncNow offers additional services for your company which can be ordered separately, including:
- Filing amendments, obtaining Good Standing Certificates and helping you get a Federal Tax ID Number (EIN)
- State annual maintenance fee notices and reminders – We forward notices to pay your state fees and even offer a payment portal if you do not wish to send your payment information directly to the state.
- Serving as a custodian of the contact person for your company – Since the name of your company’s owners and managers are not on the initial filing, the state requires that a Delaware Commercial Registered Agent maintain the contact information of someone at the company that has access to those records.

“I was trained as an aerospace engineer but ended up on the business side, running companies. My experience with IncNow was terrific. They were fast and did everything right — plus they were very competitive, often hundreds of dollars less than some competitors. Highest recommendation.” —Ernie Martin
“IncNow was fast and professional, everything I wanted and more than I expected. I highly recommend them. I have used other services in the past and been happy, but IncNow is the best I’ve used so far and I will use them the next time I need to set up a Corporation. By the way, I found other services that had competitive pricing, but their annual agent fee was 3 X as much – so be sure to check ALL the costs when you compare services.” —Brad Peppard
