Annual Requirements for Nevada LLCs
After you start a Nevada LLC, you must file an Annual List and renew your State Business License every year.
This enables your LLC to maintain its good standing status and keep doing business in the state of Nevada.
The Annual List & State Business License renewal are contained in the same filing.
The full name of the Annual List is actually the “Annual List of Managers or Managing Members”.
Nevada LLC annual fees:
1. Annual List of Managers or Managing Members = $150 per year.
2. Nevada State Business License Renewal = $200 per year.
Your Nevada LLC’s Annual List & State Business License renewal are filed with the Nevada Secretary of State.
Your Nevada LLC Annual List & State Business License renewal are due on or before the last day of your LLC’s anniversary month. The anniversary month is the month your Nevada LLC was approved.
You can find this date in the upper-right corner of your stamped and approved Articles of Organization. It’s usually called the “Filing Date and Time”. You can also use the Nevada Business Search tool, search for your LLC, and look for the “File Date”.
For example, if your Nevada LLC was approved on April 9th 2022, your first Annual List & State Business License renewal will be due by April 30th 2023. Then every year going forward it will be due by April 30th.
You can file your Nevada LLC Annual List & State Business License renewal as early as 90 days before the due date.
If you don’t file your Nevada LLC Annual List & State Business License renewal on time, the Secretary of State will charge you a $175 late fee and your LLC will go into “Default” status.
If you continue to ignore this requirement, your LLC’s status will become “Revoked”.
You can Reinstate (bring back into good standing) your Nevada LLC, however, you will need to pay all outstanding annual fees + penalties for every year you failed to file. After 5 years of an LLC being in “Revoked” status, the LLC then becomes “Permanently Revoked”.
Filing methods & processing times:
You can file a Nevada LLC Annual List & State Business License renewal by mail or online.
Filing by mail takes 3-5 business days while the online filing is processed and approved instantly (right after payment is made).
LLC University® recommendation: We recommend filing online as the process is much easier and the approval time is instant.
Online filing instructions only:
The instructions below are for the online filing method. If you prefer to file by mail, please download the paper Annual List & State Business License renewal form and mail it to the state with a check or money order for $350 (payable to “Secretary of State”). The mailing address is:
202 North Carson Street
Carson City, Nevada 89701-4201
Nevada LLC Annual Reminders:
The Nevada Secretary of State will mail a courtesy reminder to your LLC’s Registered Agent address. This reminder is sent out approximately 3 months before the Annual List & State Business License renewal are due.
If you have a SilverFlume account setup, you will also get email reminders 1, 2, and 3 months before the due date.
However, even if you don’t receive the courtesy reminders from the Secretary of State, it is still your responsibility to file your Nevada LLC Annual List & State Business License renewal on time.
LLC University® recommendation: We recommend putting a repeating reminder on your phone and on your computer. We also recommend writing it out and putting it in some place where you’ll see it every year.
