The 4-Step Process




Get an InCitySpace Business Street Address & Registered Agent Service

Your InCitySpace business address is a professional commercial office building address location in Seattle, WA. This is a real street address, not a PO Box. You can use this address to file your business LLC, corporation or partnership with the Washington Secretary of State, Department of Revenue, Department of Licensing, Internal Revenue Service, and use the address on all your company marketing materials and website.

Every corporation, LLC, or Limited Partnership must have a registered agent (also known as a “resident agent,” “statutory agent” or “agent of process”) in their state of formation, and in any state the company qualifies to do business in. The registered agent ensures you receive all important legal documents such as service of process (meaning a notice of a lawsuit) and official governmental notices. This is a critical service as it can determine if you win or loose a lawsuit. The Washington Secretary of State requires a registered agent. When you sign up with InCitySpace, you get a business address and we serve as your registered agent.
