How is Northwest different from other registered agent services?

We don’t store your credit card information. You’ve probably heard the term “big data,” and you should be afraid of it. We will not sell your data to other companies or individuals to make extra money.

It only takes one mistake to cause a serious problem, that’s why we’re serious about being your registered agent. We are the only national registered agent service that locally scans everything into your online account in real time. Our headquarters is located in Spokane, Washington. So we are Washington corporate filings experts. When we receive a document for you at our Spokane office, we scan and upload it right away to your online account. Then we make sure you and/or whoever else you want to be notified actually log in and view your documents. We call and email you to make sure you get the message.

Privacy. Hiring a Washington registered agent is serious. You should know about our company’s privacy policy. After you sign up with us online, if the general public or a government official contact us regarding your business, we have rigid privacy practices to keep your data safe. All of our staff has been trained to never give away your details. Our in-house, data-security professionals stress test our system regularly to make sure client data is safe and secure.

Collections. We talk to so many new clients who are switching to Northwest Registered Agent because their old registered agent had really obnoxious billing policies. We never send our clients to collections. If you don’t want to pay us, we will end our service. We take our trademarked slogan, “We’re Just Not Annoying” seriously.

This isn’t just our job, it’s our passion. By now you are thinking, “these guys think pretty highly of themselves,” and maybe we do. But it is only because we have worked so hard to perfect what we do. Registered agent service is our lives, and we’re great at it.

Why Your Life Will Be Better If You Hire Us:

Notification Icon

It’s not personal, but you’ll likely struggle with your business filing. Why? Because Washington business registration filings are confusing. But we do them every day, and when you hire us, as part of our registered agent service, we’ll instantly provide you with filing instructions, tips, order sheets, and the forms you need to file.

Documents Icon

This is only the beginning. When you form an LLC or corporation, you’ll have ongoing reports like the Washington annual report, which is due to the state by the end of your business’ anniversary month each year. We also offer complete corporate services in Washington. You can always see upcoming report dates for every state in which we’re your registered agent. Your reminders are always based off your real corporate data, the same data the state sees. And 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. We do the work for you programmatically on the backend and provide you with not only a reminder but the forms you need to file (LLC forms, corporation forms, annual report forms, etc.) already prepopulated with your information on them—all for no additional charge.

Tools Icon

Free tools. We don’t simply send you a bill for providing registered agent service—we offer all the corporate legal forms you need to maintain your Washington LLC, Washington nonprofit, charity, corporation, LLP, or any other type of Washington business. Through our Online Service Manager, you need only enter your information once and use that data to populate all kinds of corporate forms, like annual meetings, amendments, and new registrations in additional states.

Phone Icon

Call us! We’re here to help walk you through the process of starting your new business. When you have a question, just call. The people who answer the phones don’t read from scripts or try to sell you anything—we’re just here to help.
