Matt Horwitz LLC University Founder

Hi, I’m Matt Horwitz. I’m the founder of LLC University®.

For the past decade, my team and I have been researching, writing, and teaching LLC formation in every single state.

Throughout this time, I’ve gotten to know the LLC formation and Registered Agent industry very well.

I don’t know what it is, but for some reason, there are some really shady companies in this space. Even “big” companies, ones whose brand name you’re supposed to trust. I people to stay away from most filing companies.

For most of them, it’s just a numbers game. They pump you through their system (sometimes not even filing your LLC correctly) trying to extract as much money from you as possible. They basically upsell the crap out of you (mostly for stuff you don’t need) and then they sell your customer data to 3rd parties.

However, there is one company I stand behind: Northwest Registered Agent.

I use them myself. And it’s the only company I recommend to friends and family.

Are we compensated by Northwest Registered Agent?

Of course we are! I love Northwest Registered Agent. I’ve been using them since I got started. And when friends ask me who to hire, I always refer them to Northwest.

So a few years back, I decided to reach out to Northwest and see if they were interested in a partnership.

Our companies share a lot of the same values (no B.S., transparency, a great service, and excellent customer support, to name a few) and honestly, the partnership was effortless. It just felt right.

Since that I’ve time, I’ve now personally been out to their main office in Spokane, Washington twice. I rented an Airbnb and was in town for a few weeks. I got to hang out with their team, chill in the office, and see the “inner workings” of Northwest.

I was already impressed with them by “studying from afar”, but after getting to know the team there, I feel 100% confident in recommending their services.

Their tagline is We’re Just Not Annoying®.

And I know at first, you may read that and think, “What the heck does that mean?” What that means is they don’t upsell you and offer you crap you don’t need, they don’t sell your customer data, and they don’t blast you with newsletters and “coupon deals” every other week (man, the industry is pretty sad lol!). They just offer a solid service, at a great price, they’re always there if you need them, but other than that, they just leave you alone.

To be honest, I think a lot of companies could learn a lot from Northwest.

For more details, you can view our advertiser’s policy (link).

I hope my honesty and transparency has been helpful.

And look, this is just one man’s opinion. And of course I’m biased. I honestly do think Northwest Registered Agent is the best game in town. And sure, it would be great if you placed your order through this page (so we’re compensated), but honestly, if you’d rather not, just go to google, type in their name, and go to their website directly. In that manner, we get no credit for the sale. I’m just happy to help you find a reliable LLC and Registered Agent company :)

Thanks for reading!

P.S. If you’d like to learn more about Northwest Registered Agent, you can check out the review I wrote: My Thoughts on Northwest Registered Agent.

Here are my top 5 reasons why I think
Northwest is the best game in town

1) No Hidden Fees. No Upsells. No Confusing Packages.

With Northwest Registered Agent, what you see is what you get.

Their tagline is “we’re just not annoying”. What they mean by that is they offer a great service at a great price. They don’t have confusing LLC packages, the don’t upsell you, and there are no hidden fees.

They offer premium LLC and Registered Agent services at the best price.

Unfortunately, most other companies take advantage of you. They make their packages confusing and trick you into paying more, often for things you don’t even need.

LLC packages at Northwest include everything you need at no extra cost.

2) They Don’t Sell Your Information to 3rd Parties

Unlike other companies that sell your personal information in order to make more money, Northwest does the opposite.

Northwest Registered Agent protects their customers at all costs. The information that you provide them, stays with them. They don’t sell it to other companies and disguise it as an “Accounting Consultation” (which is really your information being sold to a company with aggressive sales tactics).

This is one of the biggest reasons I personally use Northwest Registered Agent for my own LLCs.

I trust that my information is safe and I’m not going to get unwanted spam or marketing solicitations.

3) You can use their address for privacy (keeping your address off public records)

The address you put on your LLC filing (that’ll be your Articles of Organization, Certificate of Organization, or Certificate of Formation) gets listed on public records with the Secretary of State.

From there, it may begin appearing on google searches (since the state databases are publicly available).

This used to drive me crazy. I’d get so much junk mail and I didn’t like it when my information was so readily available via a quick google search.

So instead of using your home address (which is what most filers do), if you hire Northwest Registered Agent, you can use their address throughout your LLC filing and keep your address off public records.

This also will eliminate junk mail, which I think is a great bonus!

4) Free Registered Agent Service for the 1st year

If you don’t have the time or patience to DIY and form your LLC yourself, if you hire Northwest Registered Agent ($39 + state fee) to form your LLC, they include their Registered Agent service free for the 1st year.

That’s a $125 discount.

After that, service in year 2 (and onwards) is $125 per year.

I also like that they don’t have a contract and you can cancel any time.

5) They know what they’re talking about

If you call most other companies in this industry, you’re likely going to speak to some sales rep who barely understands what a Registered Agent is or how to form an LLC.

On the other hand, I really like that Northwest Registered Agent doesn’t have any sales reps. Pretty much everyone in their company does customer support. There’s no dedicated “sales team”. So when you call, you just speak with a friendly person who knows what they’re talking about. I find this super helpful.

Go ahead and give them a call (509-435-9053). Ask any question you want. I think you’ll be impressed when the phone is answered right away (no annoying phone prompts or extensions), the person you speak with is very friendly, and most importantly, they are experts at what they do. They know the ins and outs of LLC formation in every single state.

This is why I think Northwest Registered Agent is the best company in the space.

All 3 LLC packages come with:

  • 60% special discounted pricing for LLC University® readers
  • Free Registered Agent service for the 1st year (then it’s $125 per year)
  • Free Address Privacy™ (Northwest will let you use their address on your LLC documents; optional, not required to use)
  • Free Address Confidentiality™ (your information is kept safe and never sold to 3rd parties)
  • Free online account & document scanning (mail sent to your LLC will be scanned and uploaded to your online account)
  • Free Annual Report reminders (if applicable in your state; most states have an Annual Report)
  • 100% error-free guarantee
  • Lifetime customer support for LLC University® readers (dedicated line: 509-435-9053)

Clarification on Address Privacy™

When you complete the LLC checkout above, you’ll be asked if you want to use your address or Northwest Registered Agent’s address. That selection will take care of your address privacy on your Articles of Organization (or Certificate of Organization or Certificate of Formation; depending on the state).

For other items, like opening a bank account, credit cards, online registrations, magazine subscriptions, etc., please use your own address.
