Fast Track Your Nevada Business License Application

When you want to operate a business, you need more than a unique idea and a concrete business plan. You also need permits and licenses to comply with federal and state laws.

A Nevada business license is vital in running a successful enterprise. Not only does it establish your startup's existence, but it also builds trust in your customers.

Start your business right! Let NCH help you with your Nevada business license application.

Who Needs A Nevada Business License?

All Nevada corporations & LLCs must get their state licenses from the Secretary of the State. Sole proprietorships and partners also need a Nevada state license as soon as they start their operations.

The only entities exempted from getting a business license are nonprofit corporations created under NRS Chapter 72 and sole corporations under NRS Chapter 84.

State Vs. Federal Licenses

Federal licenses are typically required for businesses regulated by a federal agency. These include manufacturing companies, importers, and businesses that sell alcohol. Meanwhile, state licenses are granted by state agencies and the State Department of Taxation.

NCH is well-versed in federal and state requirements, so you can rest easy knowing your startup will be fully compliant on all levels.
