  • We have the most sophisticated business compliance reminder system in the industry. When you start your business in Kansas, it’s only the beginning. You’ll have ongoing reports due to the Kansas Secretary of State every year (reports for for-profit business entities are due on the 15th day of the fourth month after the end of your fiscal year, typically April 15th). You’ll always see upcoming report and maintenance dates in your online account for every state in which your hired us for registered agent service. We’ll remind you based on your business’ corporate data, and if Kansas’ reporting requirements or legislative laws change, we’ll keep you up to date.

How is Northwest different from other registered agent services?

  • We don’t store your credit card information. You’ve probably heard the term “big data,” and you should be afraid of it. We will not sell your data to other companies or individuals to make extra money.
  • It only takes one mistake to cause a serious problem, that’s why we’re serious about being your registered agent. We are the only national registered agent service that locally scans everything into your online account in real time. We keep commercial offices in each state, and when you hire us for Kansas registered agent service, we scan everything from our office in Wichita, KS. Your Kansas registered agent is your business’ only point of contact for serious legal notices. We don’t just simply email you copies of your notices—we make sure you and/or whoever you want to be notified actually log in and view your documents. If you’d like, we can also arrange to call and mail you notices until you look at your documents.
  • Privacy. Hiring a registered agent shouldn’t be a whimsical decision. You should know about the company’s privacy policy. When you sign up with us online, you’re actually hiring Northwest Registered Agent. And if the general public or a government official wants to know who owns your company, they’ll have to talk to us. We have rigid privacy practices to keep your data safe. All of our staff has been trained to never give away your information, and our in-house, data-security professionals stress-test our system regularly to make sure your business’ information is safe and secure.
  • Collections. We take in new clients everyday who are sick of their current registered agent’s billing policy. We never send our clients to collections. If you don’t want to pay us, don’t. Our trademarked slogan is “We’re Just Not Annoying,” and we take it to heart.
  • This isn’t just our job, it’s our passion. Obviously, we think highly of ourselves, but this is what we do. When you sign up, we don’t think of you as just another line item on a profit and loss sheet, a dividend payment to our owners; your business is not just an idea that we hope will work out. And we’re definitely not a massive corporate machine with an army of salespeople looking to squeeze every last penny out of you. Registered agent service is our lives, and we’re great at it.
