Nevada Fictitious Name Laws
Nevada law restricts and prohibits your corporation from doing business under any name other than its complete corporate name UNLESS you first comply with the statutory process to register a fictitious name.
In Nevada, the Secretary of State Corporations Office IS NOT responsible for registering Fictitious Name. Rather, that responsibility has been delegated to the county recorder offices in the county in which the business does business.
Many Nevada corporations actually are not headquarters in the Sate of Nevada. You should look to the laws of the state in which you are doing business concerning compliance with their fictitious name laws. You will also need to register to do business in each state in which you do business.
You must be certain to observe fictitious name restrictions when advertising your business, executing documents, and any other activities related to the business of your corporation. Each document that you sign should be in the name of the Corporation. This is also important for assuring that corporate formalities are followed and to take away any argument that a creditor could use to attach your personal assets for liabilities that arise through the activities of your incorporated business.
