Businesses that are forfeited, inactive, cancelled, merged, or dissolved, are not eligible to associate with a Trade Name Renewal. If forfeited, this entity must be reinstated before it can be associated with a Trade Name Renewal.
The Resident Agent is the Maryland resident age 18 or older, the Maryland corporation, or the Maryland LLC that has been chosen by your business to receive service of process (notice of official court action), and who has consented to being the entity’s resident agent. By law, you cannot complete this filing without first obtaining the agent’s consent (Md Code, Corporations & Associations §1-208(a)). The Resident Agent may be associated with the entity, or may be an unassociated third party.
Please contact email@example.com for additional assistance. The Department cannot recommend any company to act as your resident agent.
