Nevada Articles of Incorporation
Filling out the Nevada Articles of Incorporation
In Nevada, the Secretary of State has jurisdiction over corporation formation and as such, can provide you with the Nevada Articles of Incorporation forms; or we can provide them for you. Nevada has no state tax and no franchise tax, making it an attractive option for businesses looking to incorporate. Nevada’s Articles of Incorporation are officially overseen by the Secretary of State and overseen by Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 78 which defines the requirements necessary to be a for profit corporation in the state of Nevada.
Article 1: Name The first section of the Nevada Articles of Incorporation will ask you to commit to the name of your pending corporation. Keep the Nevada Corporate Naming Rules in mind as you fill out this section, as an inappropriate choice of name will result in the delay or rejection of your request to form a corporation. Every corporation formed in Nevada must use one of the following three corporate endings or their approved abbreviations: Corporation, Incorporation or Company. The accepted abbreviations are Corp., Inc., and Co.
Article 2: Registered Agent and Registered Office This section calls for you to fill in the person or entity that will act as your corporation’s official Registered Agent.
