Texas Business Address
Protect Your Privacy With Our Address
If you’re getting ready to form a business in Texas, you’ve likely done a lot of research up to this point. But do you know what your Texas business address will be?
This question is slightly complicated if you run an online business without a traditional brick-and-mortar office. You may be concerned (and rightly so) about the privacy risk that comes from using your home address to register your business with the state.
You can definitely run a successful home or web-based business without renting an expensive office space—but it helps to have a commercial address on the public record. And you don’t have to spend a fortune to get one: for $39 a year we’ll be your dedicated Texas registered agent and let you use our Austin office address on your state forms instead of your own.
Looking for a reliable mail forwarding service? We can help with that too.
Our Texas registered agent service comes with free mail forwarding—5 pieces of non-state mail scanned into your online account each year, in addition to every piece of legal mail we receive for your business. We also have 2 full-service options you can add at checkout, so you’re sure to find the Texas mail forwarding plan that meets your needs.
Here’s our brief guide to choosing the right Texas business address for your new enterprise.
What is a Texas business address?
You only need one address to legally form a new Texas LLC or corporation: the street address of your Texas registered agent. This office will be listed as your place of business in the state records.
Simply put, your Texas registered agent’s address is your official Texas business address.
Your future success depends on having a stable address for your business, so it’s important that you choose a dedicated, local registered agent service (like us!).
What is a Texas Registered Agent?
A Texas registered agent is the designated recipient of legal mail for a Texas business entity. They must be a bonafide Texas resident—either an individual or a company —with a physical street address in the state of TX (no P.O. boxes). They’re required to maintain regular business hours at this street address (their registered office), and accept legal mail on behalf on your business.
Why do I need a Texas registered agent?
Having a Texas registered agent for your business gives the state government a fail-safe method of contacting you, the business owner. Official paperwork from the Secretary of State will go to your Texas registered agent, as well as any service of process in the event of a lawsuit. It’s your agent’s job to notify you when new legal mail arrives, and forward those documents to you without delay.
If you’re looking for unparalleled Texas registered service and a real, local business address, you’ve come to the right place. Here at Texan Registered Agent we provide same-day scanning of your legal mail, a stable commercial address for your business, free basic mail forwarding and a local customer service team you can count on.
Want to save yourself even more time? Let us form your Texas LLC or corporation for you. We’ll process your order instantly and have your documents submitted to the Texas Secretary of State in one business day.

Along with our $39 Texas registered agent service, we include the use of our Austin office address to help you form your company.

Benefits of a Texas Business Address
Having a physical, local office address on the record can benefit your Texas business in a number of ways. Here are just a few.
Privacy: Using a Texas business address means you can start your business while keeping your home address out of the permanent public record. You won’t have a mailbox that’s overflowing with junk mail, and you won’t have angry customers showing up on your doorstep at 6 in the morning.
Stability: Even if you move three times in one year, your business address on record won’t change. If a vendor or bank manager wants to look up your company in the Secretary of State database, they’ll find a company that has maintained a stable, commercial address year after year.
Ease of use: Did we mention that you have file a Change of Address form with the Texas SOS every time you move? Having a Texas business address will save you the trouble of submitting this form and pay a $125 fee just to keep your business in compliance.
Using a business address will give you peace of mind as you start your new venture and help you avoid obstacles later on. When you hire us to serve as your registered agent or form your company, we include a free Texas business address.
