I received a renewal notice for this year. I did not want to continue to use The Company Corporation as my Registered Agent, so I did not pay the invoice.
I have now received a notice from a collections agency, trying to collect the Annual Fee for this year. When I called the Company Corporation, their explanation was that, in order not to be billed, I would have needed to contact the state of Kansas and remove them as my Registered Agent. This was not indicated to me on any correspondence I received about renewal, and certainly wasn't after the payment period passed.
Oddly enough, on all the "pay us or else" notices, it indicates that if I don't pay they will discontinue my statutory representation...and refer me to a collection agency. How come they can discontinue it for non-payment in that case, and not discontinue because I simply did not renew?
Lastly, as my Registered Agent, why didn't they receive notice from the State that my corporation registration was about to lapse in July, and notify me. In other words, they discontinued representing me as of January, but still want me to pay for a year's representation.
As a small LLC, I should have simply listed myself as the Registered Agent. It's not worth the $250 to be on a perpetual renewal program with a collectionj agency threat behind it.
