How Our Montana Annual Report Service Works

For $100 plus the state-mandated report fee, we’ll file your annual report. For all foreign and domestic businesses, that’s $120 total.

  • You can sign up for this service by itself or add it to an existing service inside your client account. Compliance service is also automatically added when you hire us to provide your registered agent service or form your Montana LLC, Montana corporation or Montana nonprofit.
  • Once you’re signed up for compliance service, you’ll pay nothing up front. We’ll send you a reminder 90 days before your filing due date and auto-charge your preferred payment method five days later.

Annual Report Service Benefits

At Northwest Registered Agent, we’re committed to protecting our clients’ privacy. Montana Annual Reports are public record, so we’ve designed our annual report service to protect your privacy. Here’s how:

  1. We will list OUR contact information instead of yours on the report form.
  2. Only the minimum required information will be included.
  3. We will list our IP address – limiting the connection between your cell phone, personal computer, and work computers – this makes it harder for advertisers to follow you.
  4. We will list our bank and credit card information – not yours.

We believe everyone has the right to keep their information private. That’s why privacy is our guiding principle when we create every service and product.
