Most jurisdictions require a listed registered office address with the business registry. Typically, this is the principal place of business for the entity—often your own physical location in country. In some countries, it's common for your corporate secretary partner to fulfill your registered office requirement. In many countries, you're required to keep physical minute books at the registered office location.

Registered agent services are most common in the U.S. and in some island jurisdictions. More commonly outside of the U.S., you'll need corporate secretary oversight of annual and ongoing compliance matters.

Most jurisdictions require an annual meeting of directors or shareholders, with written documentation of minutes or resolutions. In some countries, these documents need to be filed locally with the business registry and maintained at the registered office.

Any company that engages in financial transactions may need a global Legal Entity Identifier (LEI). This could include larger companies with their own treasury operations; financial companies; and law firms working with financial firms, including REITs, insurance companies, and banks.
