To find the highest-rated registered agent services, we performed an in-depth examination of various providers in the industry and selected the 10 top options. We assessed these services across six principal categories, using 17 different metrics in total. The criteria were weighted to emphasize features that are critical for small businesses

Here are the metrics we considered to review the leading registered agent services:

Pricing

We examined both the initial and renewal prices for registered agent services, along with any supplementary or unforeseen fees, such as unexpected extras. We also took into account any guarantees and extra perks. Pricing accounts for 20% of the final score.

General Features

Thirty percent of our review methodology investigated how providers process documents, announce the arrival of new correspondence and whether they remind you about important registration renewal deadlines and urgent documents.

Mobile App

Business today often spans multiple locations, and many proprietors leverage mobile technology to ensure smooth operations. We examined the presence of a mobile app in our evaluation, though this feature only makes up 5% of the total score as it does not impact the primary services of the agent.Service and Support

We determined that, unlike mobile accessibility, being able to reach live help at any time is a fundamental aspect of a premium service. We investigated the availability of customer support from each provider and rated them based on the range of contact methods available, whether support is accessible 24/7 and the presence of a knowledge base for self-help. These criteria account for 15% of a provider’s total score.

Ratings and Reviews

To grasp how users everywhere perceive each provider, we studied third-party user reviews and ratings. We evaluated the average rating for each provider and the total number of reviews they obtained to see if it lives up to its marketing promises. These ratings make up 10% of the total score.

Expert Score

Using our own firsthand experience, we analyzed a range of metrics such as ease of use, the quality of features and popularity to ascertain the best services. This expert evaluation comprises the last 20% of the overall rating.
