Nevada requires foreign corporations to publish annual statements every year the corporation is doing business in the state. This statement must be published before the end of March, for each calendar year. The penalty for failing to publish an annual statement can include a fine of $100 per month, for the duration a statement remains unpublished. If you are a foreign corporation operating in Nevada, you’ll need to make sure that you are meeting the requirements for this annual publication.
This requirement only applies to foreign corporations. If you are an LLC or a partnership, and not a corporation, the annual publication is not required. If you are an LLC taxed as a corporation, you do not have to publish an annual statement. If you are a privately held foreign corporation, you will have to publish an annual statement. If you are a foreign non-profit corporation registered in Nevada, you will have to publish an annual statement.
Below are the requirements for a corporation’s annual publication in Nevada.
- The statement must include the name of the corporation.
- The statement must include the name and title of the corporate officer submitting the statement.
- The statement must include the mailing or street address of the corporation’s principal office.
- The statement must include the mailing or street address of the corporation’s Nevada address, if one exists.
- The statement must be published in two issues of a newspaper published in Nevada.
- The publisher must have a total weekly circulation of at least 1,000.
If you are a foreign corporation registered in Nevada, and have questions about your annual publication statement, it may be beneficial to consult with a Nevada business attorney. They will be able to review your corporation and make sure you are compliant with the state’s rules and regulations.
