Can I Use A P.O. Box As The Primary Address For My LLC?

Can I use a P.O. box as the primary address for my LLC? I am looking to incorporate in Pennsylvania.

Answer

Most states, including Pennsylvania, require a street address (not a PO Box) for the LLC’s registered agent / resident agent. There are services such as UPS Stores that give you a real street address, and you refer to your box # as “Suite 123”.

For all other purposes, a PO Box as your LLC’s business address is usually acceptable.

Business address and registered agent address are two different concepts. A business address is where your business is located, such as a storefront or office.

A registered agent address is typically either your business address, your attorney’s office, or a separate company that acts as your registered agent.
