Kansas Registered Agent Service
Registered Agent Service for $49/Year
Get Business Done Fast
Kansas pioneered eGovernment in 1990 by becoming the first state to allow online access to state, county, and local government information and services. The State realized that people wanted to get their business done online and get it done fast.
Here at Kansas Registered Agent Service, we know that’s true. That’s why we’ve designed a cutting-edge online filing system that get your business filings done faster than anyone else. It’s why our business management system makes sure you’re notified about any official paperwork that enters our office within minutes of its arrival. That’s our promise: your business needs, met quickly, efficiently, correctly, the first time.
With our system:
- Your documents are uploaded immediately and can be seen in real-time, minutes after they enter our registered office
- You are notified across multiple media to ensure that you are contacted and actually view your documents
- You receive regular reminders well in advance of deadlines so that you remain compliant
A Dedicated, Local Registered Office
When you hire Kansas Registered Agent Service, you’re not signing with a mega-conglomerate corporation. Many of our clients do just that and later find it’s hard to get personal service or fair prices out of those companies.
We run a local office registered right here in Wichita. We’re native Kansans and proud of it. If there’s one thing we know, it’s Kansas business, how it’s done and how to do it right. We offer the best service possible at a fair price. We treat our clients with the respect they deserve. Our job is to make your life easier.
You’ll find all kinds of filing tips and guides in your online account, and our business filing experts can be reached by phone every day. You won’t talk to a machine when you call, and you won’t be on hold for hours.
The best registered agent service at the best rate: only $49 per year.
What’s the Difference Between a Kansas Registered Agent and a Kansas Resident Agent?
Nothing. There are multiple names for the same thing.
Why Am I Required to Have a Registered Agent?
State law (KA Corporate Code 17-6201 and 17-6202) states that any entity wishing to conduct business within the state must hire a resident agent and maintain a registered office.
When an individual, company or agency sues your business, the service of process (legal notification of the lawsuit) is delivered to your registered agent. Official mail from the Secretary of State is also sent to your resident agent.
What Are the Duties of My Kansas Resident Agent?
As your resident agent, we:
- Sign for service of process (legal notification of a lawsuit) on your behalf
- Sign for official mail at our registered office from the Secretary of State on your behalf
- Contact you immediately when your documents arrive
- Send you all your documents after we sign for them
- Maintain a registered office in Wichita, KS (registered physical address, not a PO Box)
- Keep our office open during regular business hours to accept certified mail on your behalf
