I am planning a startup in internet space and I live in California. I do not wish to use my home address as the place-of-business (physical) address in the incorporation documents due to concerns about privacy.
Can I use the registered agent address as the physical address in documents? CA incorporation documents require that a "physcial address" be listed. Registered agent services from bizfiling/legalzoom etc do not allow registered agent address be listed both as the registered agenet as well as the physical address.
Would this be any different if I incorpoated in Delware instead of California even though I live in California?
I am already planning to use a registered agent due to privacy concerns and do not want the business name to be easily traceable to me (CA secretary of state website shows only the registered agent name/address when quickly searching for a business).
Edit: I want to know
a) can I use the registered agent address as the "actual business address" in CA and DE?
b) When using webservices e.g. bizfilings to file articles of incorporation with free registered agent for a few months, these services ask for "actual business address." Since these services do not provide registered agent address when completing the form, how could one use agent address as the "actual business address"?
