Nevada LLC Basics & Helpful Information

General Overview of the Nevada LLC

This article is meant to be a general overview of the Nevada LLC formation process and other basic issues related to LLCs.

Nevada Filing Fees

The Nevada Secretary of State charges $75 to file the Articles of Organization to form your Nevada LLC. The Articles can be filed by mail or uploaded online via Silverflume, Nevada’s web-based business filing portal. In addition, a Nevada LLC must file an “Initial List” of officers and obtain a Business License. The Initial List of Officers and Business License filing and fees are due no later than the last day of the month following the filing of your organizational documents with the Secretary of State.

Nevada Filing Time

The Nevada Secretary of State will process the Articles of Organization in 5-7 working days after filing. For regular (24 hour) expedited services, there is a $125 fee. If that is not fast enough, you can request 2 hour service ($500) or even 1 hour service ($1,000).

Nevada Annual Compliance & Other Requirements

Nevada LLCs must file a list of company officers, directors and Registered Agent annually in the month in which your LLC was formed. The annual list costs $150 each year. Failure to file the report and pay the fee will result in penalty fees. Forms will be mailed to the LLC’s registered agent upon the filing of the LLC and annually thereafter.
