Dakota W Registered Agent LLC is a Commercial Registered Agent listed with the Secretary of State’s office. We run a commercial office right here in Fargo. We’ve dedicated ourselves to helping the North Dakota business community by offering high-quality, service-oriented business filing services and registered agent service.

When you hire a registered agent, you are appointing that person or company to accept legal notifications should your company ever become party to a lawsuit. Your registered agent will also sign for official mail from the Secretary of State, such as annual report reminders.

If your registered agent fails to get you your documents in a timely manner, it can seriously damage your business. Which is why you should carefully consider who you hire. There are lots of options. Unfortunately, many of our competitors lack critical resources, which keeps them from registering with the State. Our corporate competitors have plenty of resources, but many of our customers have come to us after discovering that the corporate conglomerates don’t usually care much for personal service. And they don’t know North Dakota business like we do.

When you hire Dakota W Registered Agent LLC, you’re hiring the best. We stand by our excellent customer service, and we stand by our industry-low price (only $49 per year, that’s it). We guarantee that you won’t be sorry if you sign with us.

Why Am I Required to Have a North Dakota Registered Agent?

According to North Dakota state law (ND Registered Agents Act 10-01.1) all business entities must maintain a registered agent and registered office in the State of North Dakota. The law attempts to ensure that the general public and government agencies have the ability to reliably contact a business, especially in the event of a lawsuit.

When your company is sued, service of process (notification of a lawsuit) is sent to your registered agent.

What Does My North Dakota Registered Agent Do?

  • Accepts service of process and official mail on behalf of the client
  • Maintains a registered office in the state (physical address, not a PO box)
  • Keeps registered office open during regular business hours
  • Forwards client documents to clients upon receiving them
  • Notifies clients that important documents have been accepted at the registered office

What’s the Difference Between a Commercial and a Non-Commercial Registered Agent?

In North Dakota, there is a distinction between Commercial Registered Agents and Noncommercial Registered Agents. A Commercial Registered Agent has filed a Commercial Registered Agent Listing Statement with the Secretary of State and paid to be on the State’s official list. A Noncommercial Registered Agent has not registered with the State.

How Do I Change My Registered Agent to You?

Option Two

The Form: North Dakota Business, Farm, Professional Articles of Amendment
