Articles of Incorporation Nevada

To form a corporation in Nevada, you must file articles of incorporation with the Nevada Secretary of State. The form is customizable.

The articles of incorporation must include the following information:

  • Name of the corporation
  • Type of entity
  • Corporate purpose
  • Corporate mailing and street address
  • Name, street, and mailing address of the registered agent
  • Incorporator's name, street, and mailing address
  • Directors’ names and mailing addresses
  • The number of shares* authorized by the corporation and their class, rights, and restrictions

*In Nevada, the state does not require you to disclose the par value of the stock. Par value is the price at which a company's shares are initially offered for sale.

The articles of incorporation can be filed online, but you must first register for an online account with the Nevada Secretary of State.

Mandatory Additional Filings

In addition to the articles of incorporation, Nevada requires the filing of a Certificate of Acceptance of Appointment by a Registered Agent.

You can view the state statutes applicable to articles of incorporation on the state website.
