If you've started and put your heart and soul into your business, why not expand? Bringing your business legally into other states can open more doors than you know- but there are rules and regulations, as always. There's generally a fee, an Application for Registration, and you'll probably need to file an annual report in that state, as well as maintain a registered agent with a physical street address and regular business hours. It may seem like a lot, but it's attainable. Follow the link and find the state in which you wish to register your business. Many of your questions will be answered!

Want to register your business in another state? If things are going well and you want to expand the reach of your business, then the answer is probably yes. Here's how to get your business operating in a foreign state ("foreign" refers to any state other than the state in which your business was initially registered). Simply find your state on the left hand side, click, and get started!

Many folks don't realize the potential burden of being one's own registered agent for their business. Being your own registered agent means having your own street address and information on documents for the world to see, having to maintain regular business hours at that address for as long as you act as RA, and the potential for process servers to come knocking on your front door whenever.

If you initially put down your own name and address as #registeredagent for your business, you can change it. You have the ability to resign as your own registered agent and pass that job on to someone else.

Follow the link and scroll to the bottom to find your specific state to learn how to resign as registered agent and appoint someone new:
 
Need to resign as registered agent for your business?

Perhaps you've discovered you don't want to or can't act as RA for your business. Here's how to resign from that position and hire on someone new. Simply scroll to the bottom, find your state, and get going:

This is a fantastic resource for those of you out there who want to finally take the plunge and START that business of yours. This is where it all begins, legally speaking.

If you plan to start your business, you will need to file Articles of Incorporation with your secretary of state. From there, each state can vary. Check out +Northwest Registered Agent LLC collection of custom legal documents right here:

Happy Monday! What are you focusing on this week?
 
Far too many people have become accustomed to paying attention to the negative side of life. The things they don’t want, the things that upset or overwhelm them. Don't do this to yourself, keep your attention on the things that feel great.

Story
Tagline
Chief legal strategy officer and blogger of most things business, registered agent, nonprofit, and more
Introduction
I spent the early years of my life working at a locally owned sawmill and enjoyed living in the woods. My life experiences have crafted a unique real world perspective to the law and real world industries. The logging industry was effectively shut down from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA); the mill closed, and the town basically died. NAFTA reinvented my career by paying for me to go to law school.

As the chief legal strategy officer, my role at Northwest guides our company and our clients through the vast bureaucracy we all deal with when running a business. I'm interested in helping people start and run successful businesses. I'm always learning and sharing. I have a special interest in nonprofits as well as registered agent services--have any questions? Ask away. 

I've recently begun authoring a blog housed on Northwest Registered Agent that covers a variety of topics concerning LLCs, incorporation, registered agents and registered agent services, nonprofits, and entrepreneurship. It's all about solid, quality information and absolutely no filler:
