Each state has different requirements for forming a limited liability company (LLC). Whether you are starting a business or incorporating a business already in existence, you'll want to understand the state requirements for LLC formation.
In Nevada, an LLC’s name must not be the same as or deceptively similar to the name (or reserved name) of any corporation, limited partnership, limited liability company, foreign corporation, foreign limited partnership or foreign limited liability company. In addition, the name of an LLC must end with "Limited Liability Company," "Limited Company," "Limited," "LC," "Ltd. Co.," "Ltd.," "LLC," or "L.L.C." Permission from regulatory agencies is required for the use of many words, such as "Accountant," "Bank," "Brokerage," "Financial" and "Realtor."
A Nevada LLC is created when Articles of Organization are approved by the state. Formation of a LLC in Nevada requires that manager-managed LLC's list each manager’s name and address.
Every Nevada LLC must appoint a registered agent as part of the formation process. The Articles of Organization require the name and address of a registered agent. The registered agent must have a physical address (no post office boxes) in Nevada and must be available during normal business hours to accept important legal and tax documents for the business.
Professionals, such as accountants, attorneys and physicians, can form professional limited liability companies (PLLCs) in Nevada.
