Nevada Business License

Don't start your business off on the wrong foot. Let NCH help you understand and obtain the Nevada license you need to run your business.

All Nevada corporations (except for nonprofit corporations formed under NRS Chapter 82 and Corporations Sole formed under NRS Chapter 84) are required to obtain a Nevada state business license from the Secretary of State.

A Federal license is typically only required for businesses regulated by a federal agency but there are several types of state licenses granted by state agencies and the State Department of Taxation. Most local counties and municipalities require licenses, and each state has their own licensing requirements for bars and restaurants.

If you’re operating a Non-Title 7 businesses (NT7), such as sole proprietorships and partnerships, the business license application is required as soon as you begin to conduct business in Nevada, must be renewed annually.

NCH will complete and file your Nevada state business license on your behalf to ensure that you’re organized with the Business License office.


For entities that are formed under NRS Title 7, such as Corporations and LLCS, the business license fee is due at the time an Initial List of Officers or Annual List of Officers is due. The State Business License Fee is in addition to the fees for the initial or annual list.
