Step 2: Complete the Articles of Incorporation.

We will assist you with completing the Nevada Articles of Organization form in this phase. The form has seven major “Articles,” as well as a supplementary page detailing the LLC’s managers or managing members.

To finish each Article, you will need to know the following information:

Managers’ or Managing Members’ Names and Addresses

Name and kind of entity

A unique and clever company name is crucial, but it is not as necessary as a legally valid name.

When selecting a name for your company, you must ensure that the name:

fulfils Nevada naming standards

is not currently in use by another Nevada firm

Stick to the Nevada Naming Guidelines:

The terms “Limited-Liability Company,” “Limited Liability Company,” “Limited Company,” or “Limited” or the acronyms “Ltd.,” “L.L.C.,” “L.C.,” “LLC,” or “LC” must be in your name. The term “Company” may be shortened to “Co.”

In Nevada, you must get permission to use certain terms in the name of your LLC.

To use the terms accountant, accountancy, accounting, auditor, auditing, certified public accountant, and CPA, you must get permission from the Nevada State Board of Accounting.

To use the phrases bank, banc, banque, savings & loan, banker, bancard, banq, thrift, banking, banco, bancor, trustee, interbanking, bancorp, credit union, debt collection, collection agency, or trust, you must get permission from the Nevada Commissioner of Financial Institutions.

To use the terms adjuster, indemnity, reinsurance, underwriter, annuity, insurance, risk retention group, underwriting, casualty, life & accident, surety, bail, bail bonds, fugitive recovery, bail bondsman/men, bounty hunter, and bale, you must obtain permission from the state Commissioner of Insurance.

To use the terms financial, mortgage, or mortgage banking, you must first get permission from the Commissioner of Mortgage Lending.

To use the phrases engineer, engineered, engineering, professional engineer, registered engineer, and licenced engineer, you must get permission from the State Board of Professional Engineers.

To use the terms architect, architecture, registered architect, licenced architect, registered interior designer, registered interior design, residential designer, registered residential designer, licenced residential designer, and residential design, you must obtain permission from the State Board of Architecture, Interior Design, and Residential Design.

To use the terms common-interest community, community association, master association, unit-owners’ association, and homeowners’ association, you must get permission from the Administrator of the Real Estate Division of the Department of Business and Industry.

The Ombudsman must approve the use of the terms common-interest community, community association, hoa, home owners association, master association, unit-owners association, and property owners.

You will also need permission to use the terms college, university, and higher education.

Your LLC’s name cannot include terms that may be confused with a government organisation (FBI, Treasury, State Department, etc.).

Your name must be distinct from any other current company in the state. Nevada reserved names are included.

Examine Name Availability:

Is your surname legal in Nevada? Check the Nevada Secretary of State website to see if the name you desire isn’t already taken.

Obtain a Domain Name:

We suggest that you check to see whether your company’s name is accessible as a web domain. Even if you don’t intend to create a company website right away, you may wish to purchase the URL to prevent others from doing so.

Registered Office and Registered Agent

A registered agent receives and transmits legal paperwork on behalf of your LLC. When you form your Nevada LLC, you must provide your registered agent and registered office address. A P.O. Box cannot be used as your registered office.

Your registered agent may be anybody over the age of 18 who resides in Nevada. During normal business hours, your registered agent must always be present at the registered office.

Date of Dissolution

List any anticipated dissolution dates for your LLC (if it is not everlasting).

Governing Bodies

You must choose whether your LLC will be handled by managers or members. Then, include each member’s or manager’s name and address.
Organizers’ Names and Addresses

Enter the names and addresses of the LLC’s organisers here.

Certificate of Acceptance of Registered Agent Appointment

If the registered agent is unavailable to sign the Articles of Organization, provide a signed Registered Agent Acceptance form in addition to the Articles of Organization. This form is also included in the package of Articles of Organization establishment.

Initial List and Application for a State Business License

At the time of filing, you must complete an Initial List of Managers or Members as well as a State Business License Application. This covers the following details:

The name of the LLC and the structure of the company

Initial managers’ or members’ names and addresses

Signature of a duly authorised manager, member, or other official

Step 3: Submit the Articles of Incorporation.

You must submit the Articles of Organization with the Secretary of State to register your LLC.

You may submit your Articles of Organization in two ways:

Fill out the forms online.

Send a physical copy through mail, fax, email, or in person.
Steps to Take After Forming Your Nevada LLC

After filing your Articles of Organization, you should do the following:

Make a Business Agreement

Obtain an EIN

Establish a Business Bank Account

Purchase Licenses and Permits

Make a Business Agreement

A Nevada LLC operating agreement is a legal document that details your LLC’s ownership structure and member functions.

Although an Operating Agreement is not necessary in Nevada to incorporate an LLC, it is a good idea to have one. You may begin working on your operating agreement before, during, or after filing your Articles of Organization.

Your operating agreement will be held in the private business records of your LLC; you will not submit it with the state.

Obtain an EIN

An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is your LLC’s equivalent of a social security number. If you want to recruit staff or create company bank accounts, you’ll need an EIN.

You may get your EIN for free by using the IRS website, fax, or mail. Read our What is an EIN article to discover more about EINs and how they might benefit your LLC.

Establish a Business Bank Account

It is critical to use specific business banking and credit accounts to safeguard your company’s corporate veil. When you combine your personal and company accounts, your personal assets (house, vehicle, and other possessions) are at danger if your LLC is sued.

Purchase Licenses and Permits

When forming an LLC, you should consider if your company requires any licences or permissions to operate legally. On the federal level, a few corporate operations need licences and/or permissions.

Learn how to secure the licences and permissions required for your company, or hire an expert to handle it for you:

Federal: For federal business licences and permits, see the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

State: Visit Nevada’s State Business License Requirements page to apply for or learn more about licences, permits, and registration.

Local: Inquire with your county clerk regarding local licences and permissions.
