Steps to Forming a Nevada Corporation

Information We Need From You to Start Your Corporation

1: Select a Name: Your company name must include one of the following: Incorporated, Inc., Limited, Ltd., Company, Co., Corporation or Corp.

2: Authorize Shares: When a corporation is formed, it authorizes shares of stock and then issues that stock to its owners. Owners are known as shareholders. Nevada requires you to designate the number of shares you will initially authorize and their par value. Typically, a corporation will authorize a small number of shares (say, 100). At the first shareholders meeting, you would issue 51% of those shares to yourself, giving you control. The par value of the stock is not the actual value, but rather the lowest price at which the stock can be sold.

3: Choose Management: Corporations are managed by their Directors. The Directors set major company policy, issue stock, determine salaries and bonuses, and appoint the corporate officers (President, Treasurer, Secretary). Generally speaking, you would appoint yourself the sole Director and take on the duties of the various corporate officers.

4: Remaining Info Needed to File:

  • Registered Agent: legal registered agents in Nevada must maintain a physical street address within the state (called a registered office). This cannot be a PO box. All of our Speedy filings come with one free year of Nevada registered agent service by Northwest Registered Agent. This service keeps your home and office addresses out of the public record and fulfills your registered agent, mailing and principal office requirements.

  • Directors: the names and addresses of your board of directors/trustees.

  • Purpose: the lawful business your corporation will perform.
