Why you need a Missouri registered agent:

  • The state requires all Missouri registered businesses to appoint one.
  • The Secretary of State Corporations Division will reject your business filing if you don’t appoint a registered agent.
  • Basically, the registered agent requirement exists so the general public and the state have a reliable way to contact your business.

What makes Northwest different from other registered agent websites?

Big Data. We know it sounds scary. And it is scary. But we won’t store your credit card. We don’t sell your info to make extra money.

This is a big decision! Your Missouri registered agent service is going to receive all of your important notices and service of process. It only takes failure in service to cause major problems for your business. We are the only national registered agent that locally scans everything into your online account in real time. We maintain our own commercial offices in each state, and when you hire us for Missouri registered agent service, we’ll scan everything from our office in Lees Summit, Missouri. We not only email you a copy of your notice, we have the most sophisticated calendaring response and tracking system of any Missouri registered agent service. Our system is designed to notify whomever you have designated AND make sure that you’re actually looking at your documents.

Privacy. When you make a purchase on this website, you’re actually hiring Northwest Registered Agent. This isn’t a game and this isn’t a decision to just make on a whim. When the general public or a government official wants to know who owns your company, your registered agent is who they will harass to find out. We have stringent privacy practices to keep your data private, trained staff who will not give away your information, and in-house data security professionals. We also stress test our own systems regularly, and we prosecute people who try to hack us.

Collections. Every day, we pick up new clients who want to switch to our Missouri registered agent service. Many of them tell us they feel their current registered agent has unfair billing policies. You can rest assured that we don’t send our clients to collections. If you don’t want our service, don’t pay for it. We don’t send client to collections. Our trademarked slogan is “We’re Just Not Annoying.” This isn’t just a slogan we made up, it’s our entire company policy.

This is all we do. Registered agent service is not a line item on a profit and loss sheet for us. It’s not a just dividend payment to our owners. It’s not something we are trying that we hope will work out. And we sure as heck aren’t a massive corporate conglomerate looking for every penny of profit they can find with an army of salespeople. This isn’t just a job to us, it’s our passion.
