About Us

Launching your Texas business—and keeping it in good standing for the duration—doesn’t have to be stressful. Our affordable Texas business services give you the all tools you need to be empowered, in control, and focused on your goals.

Meet The Owner

Born and raised in our great state, Lacey Williams is a self-taught Texas business expert and angler. Before starting Independent Texas Registered Agent, she paid the bills by working as a virtual assistant for entrepreneurs across Austin. In this role, she gained first-hand experience of a side of business ownership that can be a real source of stress for owners: keeping their legal affairs organized.

In the 13 years since becoming a business owner herself, she’s learned that the best registered agent is the one you don’t even have to think about. They’re just there behind the scenes, helping everything run like clockwork.

When she’s not helping business owners with all the ins-and-outs of doing business in the Lonestar State, you’ll find her at Canyon Lake fishing for Largemouth Bass.

How It All Started

 

From Lacey:

“This company originated out of a desire for homemade tamales. My friend—who truly hates paperwork—started an LLC and asked me to be her Texas registered agent. I was working from home at the time, so it made sense (I knew I’d be around to accept legal mail for her business). In exchange, she’d bring me some of her famous tamales once a month.

Signing for business mail in exchange for delicious tamales seemed like a good trade-off, but it ended up being far more complex than I’d imagined. Within a month of allowing my address to be listed on the Texas public record, I had a flood of junk mail coming to my house—and my friend needed a lot more help keeping her business in compliance than I was set up for.

But I like a good challenge. Soon, word got around and more friends were coming to me with questions about business formation. I remembered (from my time as a virtual assistant) the exorbitant lawyer fees my clients paid for help starting their businesses and staying in compliance. I wanted to provide comprehensive business services—registration, reminders, mail forwarding, privacy protection—for less.

By focusing on the basics, getting them right, and keeping my prices low, I built up my client base and was eventually able to rent a small office. That was 13 years ago. Now we own the building. Our company serves hundreds of happy business owners (including my friend and first customer) and has a highly-skilled team of Texas business experts to help everything run smoothly.”

What We Believe

Office ExteriorFrom protecting your privacy with our business address, to creating our unique monthly pricing plans, everything we’ve done supports our aim of giving small business owners what they actually need.

We’re committed to maintaining your trust, providing exceptional service without fail, and giving you the flexibility and freedom you need to grow your company from a seedling to a mighty oak.

Trust Goes A Long Way

While building Independent Texas Registered Agent from the ground up, Lacey asked business owners what they wanted most out of a registered agent service. They wanted the reassurance that when an important legal document arrived for their company, their registered agent would be on hand to accept it and forward it to them without delay.

Trust is the cornerstone of our business. We earn yours by:

  • handling your business filings with the utmost care
  • keeping your personal information safe
  • providing consistently fast, seamless service—including same-day scans
  • being upfront and honest with our pricing

Your trust is more important to us than turning a quick profit. We understand that providing quality, consistent service helps both of us in the long run.

Choices Mean Independence

We saw that all of our competitors were charging their clients for a full year of service upfront. But we knew that wouldn’t work for everyone. So we came up with our monthly, contract-free registered agent service model.

We’re now happy to announce we offer a monthly payment option for our business formation packages as well, so you can launch your company on your own timeline—without high state fees getting in the way.

We Work For You
(Not the Other Way Around)

The world has changed a lot since Lacey first set out to start her own Texas registered agent business.

But one thing has stayed the same: getting things rolling is a lot easier if you have people you can count on.

We want to be part of your community of support, and we’ll be with you through the thick and thin. Our local team is standing by and ready to help—if you have any questions about getting your business up and running, or if your business needs change—please reach out to us. We want our Texas registered agent service to work for you, not the other way around.

The Independence and Flexibility
You Need

We came up with our $7.99-per-month pricing model as a way to better serve our clients who need flexibility as they strike out into the business world. Our monthly subscription gives you the freedom to take it one step at a time.

So go ahead and give us a try.
