IncFile vs Northwest Registered Agent

We like that IncFile’s basic Silver plan comes with a free year of Registered Agent service and you don’t pay IncFile any service fees. But we worry that people often select IncFile’s basic (free) package and end up paying for extra upsells.

Northwest Registered Agent has excellent customer service and they are industry experts. Northwest really values customers’ privacy, so they keep your address off public records and don’t sell your data to third parties.

Northwest Registered Agent vs LegalZoom

Northwest Registered Agent has excellent customer service and they are industry experts. LegalZoom seems to hire only salespeople, and only wants to offer you subscriptions.
LegalZoom makes things complicated with lots of fine print, and their services are offered in confusing packages and monthly subscriptions. On the other hand, Northwest has a simple, easy-to-use website with clear and friendly language.

InCorp Review

InCorp Services, Inc. is a well-known business formation service and Registered Agent service company. They are best known for their national Registered Agent services. Their Limited Liability Company (LLC) formation offerings are established but may not be familiar to entrepreneurs.

Other competitors usually focus on their business formation services and offer to act as your LLC’s Registered Agent as a secondary option.

Active Filings Review

In our opinion, the Starter package offers great value for money. You only pay the state fees, and you get a good service package. We liked that ActiveFilings was honest about turnaround times, and gives clear information about what’s included in their packages.

Some parts of their website are too basic and can be confusing. And some of their prices seem pretty high. But we appreciate that they offer address privacy for their clients, and that they have put together packages specifically for international users.

ZenBusiness LLC Service Review

Is ZenBusiness a good choice for LLC services and registered agent services? Their services offer many pros, and only one real con – the confusing pricing of their auto-renewing subscriptions. Besides this, however, ZenBusiness is a good choice. Their packages offer plenty of features at reasonable initial prices. And you can avoid certain upsells by doing some filings yourself.

MyCompanyWorks is a good choice for LLC formation services, especially if you’re looking to get a DBA.

MyCompanyWorks also has very quick turnaround times, and can be your Registered Agent. In our opinion, MyCompanyWorks offers a lot of extra features for free and has some quality additional services.
