    Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$post_date in /var/www/webapp/ui/mlb_faq.php on line 96

    Business owners are often interested in incorporating in Delaware,but are uncertain of whether they can do so without having a physical office in the state.

    A business owner does not need a physical location to incorporate in Delaware, but they do need to have a registered agent for service of process.

    Biz Filings ($129), Legal Zoom ($159), The Company Corporation ($235) and a number of other companies provide a registered agent for service of process in Delaware.

    However, you will also need to register your business in each state you are doing business. Most states have a very low registration threshold because they not only want to know which businesses are operating in the state, but to also maximize revenue from franchise and other business taxes.
