AN ADMINISTRATIVE BUFFER
As a client of ARMENHYL GROUP LLC's Registered Agent Business Solutions, your business will have an administrative buffer to support the privacy of any and all owners. ARMENHYL offers use of our business address for your formation documents and annual reports, instead of using any personal address. This will prevent your personal, office or other business location addresses from being published on the website of the Virginia Secretary of State.
Utilizing personal addresses on the filing documents of your business will make your personal information public and available to marketers and scammers for unsolicited mailings, calls, visits or worse. Such utilization of a personal address for a business may violate the rules of your lease, Homeowner Association or Zoning restrictions. Your municipality may charge a fee for "home based businesses" or may prohibit use of your home address as a business address.
ESTABLISH THE "CORPORATE VEIL"
Having ARMENHYL GROUP LLC as your Registered Agent also provides a level of safeguard against some liabilities or the "piercing of the corporate veil,” which may result in personally responsibility for business debts. It is often recommended that one's personal information and affairs be kept separate from those of one's business. It is best not to "mix business with pleasure."
Create a perception of professionalism by utilizing our Virginia business address. With the availability of gps maps, the use of a personal address
may make clients skeptical about your business. Having an address in a known and viewable business location can provide prospective clients
with the confidence the need to utilize your business.
RECEIPT OF CERTAIN DOCUMENT DELIVERY
Mail (especially Junk Mail) and Legal documents will be delivered to ARMENHYL GROUP LLC, instead of to your personal address or place of business. This includes the Service of Process (such as a summons or subpoenas) which inform your business of a pending legal action. In addition, governmental offices of the Commonwealth of Virginia will send official notices such as annual reports to the registered agent.
CONSISTENCY EVEN WITH CHANGE
Our services eliminate the inconvenience of an address change should your business operations move to a different location.
