Mississippi Registered Agent

Do Business the Right Way

A Mississippi registered agent is the designated agent for service of process. This means that Mississippi corporations and LLC’s must appoint a registered agent who agrees to accept official documents and legal notices on behalf of the business. The registered agent must have a physical address in Mississippi.

What Do Mississippi Registered Agents Do?

At a minimum, Mississippi registered agents accept legal documents (service of process) and official mail on behalf of your business. Your agent also maintains a physical location in the state (known as a registered office) where they can accept this mail.

However, the right registered agent service can do much more. At Northwest, we go above and beyond the minimum to ensure top speed, security, privacy and support.

How Do I Change My Mississippi Registered Agent?

It costs $10 to file a change of registered agent form to change your registered agent in Mississippi to Northwest.

Mississippi Registered Agent FAQs

Why Do I Need A Mississippi Registered Agent?

  • State law requires all legitimate, registered businesses to appoint one.
  • The secretary of state will reject your business filing if you don’t appoint a registered agent.
  • A registered agent requirement gives the public and the state a reliable way to contact your business.

Where Is Northwest’s Registered Office In Mississippi?

We accept and scan all of our Mississippi clients’ documents on-site at our registered office in Ridgeland, MS.

Will You Let Me Know When My Mississippi Annual Report Is Due?

Absolutely! If you own an LLC or corporation in Mississippi, you’ll need to complete your MS annual report. As part of our registered agent service, we’ll not only send you a reminder, but we’ll make sure you have access to all the forms and instructions you need to stay compliant.

Can I Use Your Mississippi Registered Office Address For Everything On My Business Filing?

Definitely! We’re the only national registered agent service that allows our clients to list our address for everything when you’re doing a filing to keep your private addresses off of public records.

Can I Have My Business’s Mail Delivered To Your Mississippi Office?

We don’t want ALL of your business mail. It’s not what we do. And it wouldn’t serve you well. You wouldn’t have unique address or suite number. Any mail we receive on your behalf would come to to Northwest Registered Agent, care of you.

But we understand that businesses and clients sometimes reach out to you through your registered agent. Through us. That’s why we give you 5 FREE scans of regular business mail a year. You can request any additional documents to be forwarded at a per document rate of $15.

Do I Hire A Registered Agent Before Or After I Start My Business In Mississippi?

You should hire us first and then do your business registration filing, because you can’t form an LLC or corporation without a Mississippi registered agent service. Also, we provide all the forms and instructions you need to complete your filing instantly after you place an order.

How Do Mississippi Registered Agents Get Served?

Service on your registered agent is legal proof that you were notified. Regardless of whether you actually receive the documents your Mississippi registered agent signs for, once they accept the documents, you’ve been notified. This is a serious responsibility that we do not take lightly. This is how it works:

  • A process server, the county sheriff, or any third party will walk into our office and hand us the documents (service of process), which we sign for.
  • The process server then gives an affidavit (a receipt of service) to the court as confirmation that they “served” us.

Note: If you’ve hired Northwest, you’ve received your documents long before the process server hands in their affidavit to the court—because we scanned them to your online account within minutes of having been served.

How Do I Search For A Company’s Registered Agent In Mississippi?

  • You can do an Mississippi business name search on the state’s website
  • Type in the company name you are trying to look up.
  • Look at the MS registered agent name and registered office street address.

Note: If you want to legally notify someone through their registered agent, just send a certified letter directly to the registered agent name and registered office address.
