Should I be my own registered agent?

Deciding whether to be your own registered agent at your place of business depends on several factors, including your comfort level with legal responsibilities, availability during business hours, and privacy concerns.

As a registered agent, you would be responsible for receiving legal documents and official government correspondence on behalf of your business. This includes important documents such as tax notices, lawsuits, and other official correspondence. You must be available during regular business hours to receive these documents. If you operate your business from a location where you are present during business hours, being your own registered agent could be feasible. Also, if you become your own registered agent, your personal address will be a matter of public record, encroaching on your privacy. This is another important point to consider when making this decision.
