Registered and Process Agent services

International companies often enter into legal agreements governed by a law foreign to their home country. They often do not have the necessary registered address to accept ‘service of process’ and therefore require registered and process agent services.

TMF Group, with over 7,000 experts in more than 83 countries, is one of the world’s leading providers of registered and process agent services. Our local teams of lawyers, company secretaries and paralegals work with clients and intermediaries across the world to achieve this legal requirement.

We offer a standardised global service in which our appointment as a process agent covers service for documents relating to contracts, transaction documents, International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) agreements and structured finance documentation. We can also receive notices on behalf of overseas companies with or without a locally registered branch. Our fees are typically fixed payments and cover the lifetime of the document(s) we are appointed under.

Risk Management

We have a centralised administration system with robust processes and controls to provide formalised and referenced process agent appointments and the efficient forwarding of documents served at our offices.


Due to our independence, we are free to work with our clients’ advisors or banks without creating conflicts due to local regulatory restrictions.
