Searching for Business Records in Nevada

In Nevada, business records are recorded and maintained by the Nevada Secretary of State. Not all of this information is available online, but some information may be accessed for free through an online search. Here are some basic tips on accessing Nevada business records over the internet.

What Records Are Maintained by the Nevada Secretary of State?

When businesses incorporate, or form a corporation, certain documents must be filed with the Secretary of State giving notice of the formation of the corporate entity. Other business entities also have some reason to file documentation, including use of state trademark registries, and filing of UCC (Uniform Commercial Code) filings to give notice of securities in a debtor’s collateral. At this time, it is not possible to access trademark registry searches or UCC searches online without a subscription. However, much information about business entities may be gleaned through an online search that does not require a subscription or a fee.

Businesses can be incorporated in any of the fifty states and sometimes choose to incorporate in a state other than their home state in order to take advantage of that state’s laws. When a business incorporates in Nevada, those documents are maintained by the Nevada Secretary of State. Some of this information is available for free online, including the name of each corporation, information about the officers, certain financial information, the registered agent, the address, and a list of documents filed in conjunction with that corporation.
