Registered Agent Service

Corporate Compliance by Local Corporate Guides®

Business entities like LLCs and corporations are required to appoint a registered agent when they form—and to have a local registered agent in every state where they transact business. This requirement for a registered agent or registered agent service came about as an aspect of due process. Due process states that before a lawsuit or other legal action can move forward in the courts, all parties must be properly notified. The most basic function of a registered agent is to ensure your business is properly notified when involved in a lawsuit.

At Northwest, our registered agent service also provides much more. Free mail forwarding, expert Corporate Guides® and Privacy by Default®—that’s us doing business the right way.

Hire A Registered Agent Or Be Your Own?

It’s true that in all states, you can be your own business’s registered agent. But do you want to be? Being a registered agent means being available at your business’s location during normal business hours, five days a week, something most new business owners have trouble doing since they’re busy starting their business. Being a registered agent also means being responsible for tax forms and tracking annual report dates with the state, things that can easily be forgotten and cost you in the long run. The one upside to not hiring a registered agent is you’ll save the annual fee. But the freedom you gain from hiring one often makes up for the expenditure.
