You must have heard of LegalZoom; they have been around long enough and establish themselves as expert formation providers.
But they’re not on this list just for this reason alone. They offer value in areas where Northwest falls short.
First of all, customers have spoken and the feedback is very positive. Also, LegalZoom has a lot of experience; they’ve been setting up businesses for more than two decades.
A huge drawback with LegalZoom is the price of their registered agent service. They charge $299 per year, while Northwest’s same service has an annual cost of $125.
Northwest Registered Agent will also process your order faster than LegalZoom. But this of course will only justify the difference in price if you’re in a real hurry.
LegalZoom charges $79 + state fees for their cheapest package. This is not necessarily inexpensive, but less expensive than the cost of Northwest’s single package ($225 + state fees).
We should also mention how much cheaper LegalZoom’s compliance service compared to Northwest.
Northwest charges $125 + state fees for annual report filing, while LegalZoom charges only $55 + state fees.
