CHECKING NAME AVAILABILITY FOR A CORPORATION IN NEVADA
The State of Nevada maintains a web site where you can check to determine whether the corporate name that you desire is available. You can also reserve a corporate name in advance in Nevada. Nevada has streamlined its incorporation process and much of the process can be performed online. You will need to obtain a secure certificate in order to use credit card processing for Nevada incorporation if you plan to incorporate online.
Nevada no longer provides telephone name availability checks. If you wish to check a corporate name, you will need to do so online by either searching the database or using the online procedure to request reservation of a corporate name.
To search for name availability online in Nevada, CLICK HERE. This link will take you directly to the name inquiring portion of the Nevada Web Site. This search will give you a list of names organized alphabetically that are close to the name that you desire.
Be certain to review the search instructions on the search page in order to obtain more meaningful search results.
It is suggested that you search in a few different ways depending upon what name you select. You should search for the entire name that you wish to secure. Print out the results of this search and keep it for your records. You should also do a partial name search to determine what names may be close, but not exactly like the name you wish to obtain.
For example, if the name that you have chosen is ABC Vending Supplies, Inc., you should search ABC Vending Supplies, ABC Vending, and perhaps ABC Ven so you will get a picture of what names may be similar to the one you have selected.
Checking the corporate name in advance is necessary and will save you a lot of time. If you do not check first, your incorporation papers will be returned to you if there is a conflicting name and you will need to start over again from scratch.
Nevada permits you to reserve a corporate name in advance. The fee to reserve a corporate name is $30.00. Nevada has greatly streamlined their incorporation process. Much of the filings can be done online. For the online name reservation page, CLICK HERE.
