Registered Agent Service in Nebraska

What is a Nebraska registered agent?

A Nebraska registered agent is a resident or business that maintains a registered office address in Nebraska and is willing to accept service of process and official mail on behalf of a business. The registered agent must be capable of accepting service of any process, notice, or demand required by law to be served on a business.

Why do I need a Nebraska registered agent?

  • All registered businesses are required by Nebraska law to appoint a registered agent.
  • Your business filing will be rejected by the Nebraska Secretary of State if you don’t appoint a registered agent.
  • Nebraska’ registered agent requirement was created so the general public and the state government have a reliable way to contact your business.

Why your life will be better if you hire us:

  • It’s not personal, but you may struggle with your business filing. Nebraska’ business registration filings can be difficult. The secretary of state doesn’t provide templates or forms to create new business entities, so most people have to create them on their own. But we do them every day. As part of our Nebraska registered agent service, we’ll instantly provide you with filing instructions, tips, order sheets, and the templates and forms you need to file any business with any state.
  • Forming your business is only the beginning. Nebraska businesses require a lot of maintenance. When you form an LLC or corporation here, you’ll have ongoing reports due to the state like the Nebraska Occupation Tax and annual/biennial report (corporations file between January 1 and March 1 in even-numbered years; LLCs and nonprofits file between January 1 and March 1 in odd-numbered year; LPs, LLPs, file reports every year). These reports cost $10 to upwards of $52 to file. That’s a lot to remember, and if you forget to file, your business entity will be dissolved by the state. For this reason alone, you should hire a reliable registered agent service.With us, you’ll always know about upcoming report due dates for every state in which we’re your registered agent. Your corporate reminders are always based off your business’ real corporate data, the same data the state sees. If legislative laws change and affect your business, you’ll know about it. We have the most sophisticated business compliance reminder system in our industry. Additionally, we provide you with not just a notice, but the forms you need to maintain your business—already prepopulated with your information on them—all at no additional charge.
  • Call us! We’re here to help walk you through the Nebraska Secretary of State filing process. If you have a question, just call. The people who answer the phones aren’t reading from scripts or trying to upsell you—we’re just here to help start your new business.
  • Free tools. We do more than just send you a bill for registered agent service every year. We also provide all the Nebraska forms you need to maintain your corporation, LLC, nonprofit, charity, LLP, or any other type of business entity. With our service, you need only enter your information once, and we use that data to populate all kinds of corporate forms like annual meetings, amendments, and new registrations in additional states.

What makes Northwest different from other registered agents?

  • This is what we do. This is more than just a job to us. We care about more than our bottom line. When you hire us, you’re hiring Northwest Registered Agent. Registered agent service isn’t a line item on a profit and loss sheet. It’s not a dividend payment to our owners. This isn’t an idea we hope will work out. And we certainly aren’t a massive corporate conglomerate with any army of salespeople looking for every penny of profit we can grab.
  • Big data. We keep your personal information private. We don’t store your credit card information. We don’t sell your data to others to make money. We don’t offer “big data” to others for a profit.
  • We are the only national registered agent that locally scans everything to you in real time. Your Nebraska registered agent service is going to be your point of contact for any major legal notices. We maintain our own registered offices in each state.

We have created the most sophisticated calendaring response and tracking system of any Nebraska registered agent service. We do everything we can to make sure you, and whoever else you need to be notified, actually look at your notices.
  • Privacy. Choosing a registered agent shouldn’t be a whimsical decision. It matters. When the general public or a government official wants to know who owns your company, your registered agent is who they’ll contact. We’ve have strict privacy policies to keep your personal data private. Our trained staff will not give away your information, and our in-house data security professionals stress test our systems regularly. Also, we prosecute those who try to hack our system.
  • Collections. We never send our clients to collections. We talk to new clients every day who are switching to Northwest because of their current registered agent’s billing policies. If you don’t want to pay us, don’t. Our trademarked slogan is “We’re just not annoying.” This isn’t just a saying, they’re the words on which our business was founded.
