What is a registered office for a corporation? All corporations are registered with the provincial government in Alberta. This is an official address where notices, civil claims and statement of claims can be sent. If they are sent to these addresses, then it is deemed to be good service. This means that if you do not get your mail because you are on vacation or have moved and forgot to update the address, then you may be sued and lose without even knowing about it. It is a good idea to have a law firm as the registered office so that everything can be dealt with, even if you are not in town. Further, the cost of hiring law firm to be your registered address is not expensive. The lawyers can also make sure that your annual returns are filed on time.
