Nevada Registered Agent Services
Under Nevada law, every business entity formed or registered with the Secretary of State must designate and continuously maintain a registered agent and registered office..
What Nevada Registered Agents Do
The State of Nevada requires every business entity registered with the state (LLCs, corporations, LPs, LLPs, etc.) to designate a registered agent. Nevada registered agents accept service of process and official mail on behalf of a Nevada business and forward those legal documents to that business. Nevada’s Model Registered Agent Act lays out the requirements:
- A Nevada registered agent must maintain a street address or rural route box number located in Nevada. The registered office may not be a P.O. box or a virtual office.
- A Nevada registered agent may be either an individual or a business entity, as long as the entity has a physical presence in the state where service of process may be delivered.
- If a registered agent represents 10 or more entities in Nevada, then it must register as a commercial registered agent. All other registered agents are considered non-commercial.
- A Nevada business entity may act as its own registered agent by appointing an office or position responsible for that duty. The person will be treated as a non-commercial registered agent
