1. Corporate Guides™ will do your work
The people doing your filings have years of experience navigating the odd world of state bureaucracy. We are all paralegals, accountants, lawyers that don’t want to be lawyers, and experts in this field. Northwest’s corporate guides™ are what makes us unique and different. You’ll experience our knowledge and insider secrets to logistically getting your filings done faster and better than anyone else.
No automated operators. No reading from a script. No upsells. Just immediate answers.
2. Your Data Stays with Us
We don’t sell or share your data with third parties. Almost every other online incorporation website will sell your information as a lead to 10 to 20 other companies. They will sell it to a registered agent company, give you 6 months free, and then you get a massive bill. You’ll get sold to merchant processing companies, domain registries, web hosting companies, accounting software, web design re-sellers, and all kinds of other companies that pay for leads. How do we know this? They ask us to buy our leads all the time. So while they may hook you with a “free” or cheap filing, they’re making $1000+ on the back end selling your data. We do not sell your data. We never have, and never will. Our business is doing online incorporations and registered agent service, not selling leads.
3. Real Registered Agent Service
When you hire us to form your company, you’re getting more than just a filing service.
We will be your registered agent, which means we’ll be accepting any lawsuits, official mail, or tax notices on your business’ behalf.
We take our responsibility seriously, and unlike many of our competitors, we don’t farm our clients out to other registered agents.
We maintain our own offices in all 50 states, and we scan every document we receive on your behalf from those locations.
We make sure each of our clients receive premium registered agent service, which includes:
- Every document we receive for your business is scanned from the local office where we receive it. No forwarding to scan hubs.
- Access to our Corporate Guides™. You can call and talk to a real human being whenever you have a question about your business.
- An online account where you can monitor your business.
- Annual report compliance.
- Every document you’ll need to file with the state, pre-populated with our information for easy filing.
We start on your order right away.
We don’t charge you extra when you choose the state’s expedited option.
We don’t have different packages. It’s just always fast.
5. An Actual Price
We don’t mark up the state filing fees. You pay us exactly what you would pay the state.
Our service fees are itemized out and you can completely customize your order to save.
6. Additional Services
When we form your corporation or LLC, you’ll also receive:
- Custom-drafted Articles
- Initial Resolutions
- Operating Agreement or Bylaws
- LLC membership certificates or corporation stock certificates
- 1 Year of Registered Agent Service (What is a Registered Agent?)
7. Online Tools
- Annual report compliance.
- Your formation documents will always be online so you can access them.
- Scans of items we receive.
- State resources.
- You can store your company information and create any kind of state filing or amendment without re-entering it.
8. Local Economy
When you hire us, we actually pay taxes locally, thus putting your money back into your local economy.
9. Long-Term Relationship
When we help you start your business, we’ll be your registered agent.
We’re always here, helping you stay in good standing with the state.
When you incorporate online with us, WE will be your registered agent. This is very rare. Many online incorporators have to hire other registered agents, and you have no clue who you will be getting. Also, many online incorporators just sell registered agent service and don’t really put forth the effort that we do to do it right. Who will be your registered agent is not a big deal today, but it will be 6 months from now.
Our Incorporate Online Process:
When you sign up, we go over your order, talk with you over the phone if you’d like, and make sure we understand what you need done.
Our in-house certified paralegals will personally file your new LLC or corporation for you the same day you place an order.
Why our Online Incorporation Service is different:
We pay taxes and operate our business in every state. Shouldn’t you trust an actual business that is in every state?
If you look our business up in each state, you’ll see we are an actual business. Shouldn’t that be important if you’re going to trust someone to handle something as important as your new incorporation? Shouldn’t the incorporation service you hire pay taxes in that state, know what the income tax rates are that you’re going to pay, and feel the same pain that you feel when they go up?
LLC Formation Information By State
Corporation Information By State:
Why it matters who your incorporation service is:
This is the start of a relationship. Who you choose to form your new company for you is a big decision. You’re going to list a registered agent. If you do not know who this is, you’ll be trusting all legal documents to come to some random company you have no understanding of. You should ask who your incorporation service is going to list as your registered agent, how they run their local registered offices, and how you will get your legal documents on an ongoing basis. It’s easy to charge $49 to do your filing, provide a filed state provided form, pass you off to another registered agent for a kickback, and then sell your lead to 20 other companies. This is not our business model. We take the time to do your new LLC or new incorporation right, get you to a place where you can take your filed documents to a bank and open up a bank account, and then have an online account and a service that will help you maintain your new corporation or new LLC.
