Business Formation and Licensing

To run your business legally, there are certain federal, state and local licenses and permits that you may need to obtain. Requirements for licensing will vary depending on the type of business you are engaged in.  Nevada requires most businesses, including sole proprietors and other entities to have a state business license issued by the Nevada Secretary of State whether or not the company performs a service or engages in a business for profit. Obtaining a state license is necessary in order to obtain any other state or local government licenses or permits.
