Why do I need a West Virginia registered agent?

Mostly because the West Virginia Secretary of State won’t let you form your business without a registered agent! The reason for this requirement is to make sure that every business in West Virginia can be served legal documents in the state.

How is Northwest different from other registered agent services?

We don’t store your credit card information. We never sell your personal details.

We take this seriously. Choosing a registered agent is a big decision. You should choose one who takes that role as seriously as you do. One mix up can cause big problems for your business. We are the only national registered agent service that locally scans every document and lawsuit into your online account in real time. Since we have offices in every state, we are able to scan every item as it comes in. We receive your documents at our Hinton, WV office and scan them immediately for you to view. We don’t have a national hub. We don’t forward docs via snail mail. We make sure you get notified and 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. You should know about the company’s privacy policy. When you use our online signup, you are hiring Northwest to be your registered agent. That’s a big responsibility! So if anyone contacts us looking for you or information on your business, our staff is trained to keep your info private. We even have in-house, data-security professionals who stress test our system regularly to make sure your data is safe and secure.

Collections. We hear from new clients all the time who are switching to Northwest Registered Agent because of their former registered agent’s unfair billing practices. We keep the same low price every year and we never send our clients to collections. 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. Okay, so we think we are pretty good at what we do. This is because we really are experts in our field. Our aim is to give you a better service than our competitors and it is really not even close. We are not some mega corporation that sees you as a potential profit. Registered agent service is our lives, and we’re great at it.
