So, yesterday, we discussed how some investors try to form an LLC in another state, because some states are just not small business friendly. Right? We cautioned you that if you want to form an LLC in another state, that you will need to get a registered agent who is a resident of that state to help you. That is with few exceptions. The logical next question you are probably asking yourself is about dual residency. Right?
Well, you actually can be your own agent, but make absolutely sure that you can both meet the state’s requirements and fulfill your duties as the registered agent. Keep in mind, as a registered agent, you’re legally required to fulfill these duties. You have to maintain your tax obligations and keep up on correspondence too.
For the amount of effort, you would probably be better suited to actually just hire a registered agent in the other state. Plus, it protects your liability a great deal too to have a registered agent. Plus, hiring a registered agent is usually quite affordable. It’s absolutely more affordable than dual residency!
If you don’t go about getting a registered agent or being your own registered agent properly, you could be looking at significant fines. Some states will even file criminal charges against you! Having to deal with facing charges in another state is absolutely going to save you no money when it comes to your investment company. So, play it safe. Consult with a business attorney. Don’t mess around if you’re planning to form an LLC in another state for cost efficiency.
