Urgent Alert for Nevada Corporations

Urgent Alert for Clients with Nevada Corporations: Additional State Fees Effective July 1st

Dear Clients,

MyNewCompany.com, Inc. has been notified by the Nevada Secretary of State of two fee increases that were recently jammed through the legislature and signed by our Governor via Senate Bill 483 (we’ve only been notified within the past few weeks and it wasn’t clear until a few days ago when the fees would be effective). Those additional fees have been verified and are as follows:

  • The “State Business License” (which is being renamed to the “State Business Registration”) is being raised from $200/year to $500/year effective July 1st for Nevada Corporation’s only – LLC’s and other entities are not affected and will continue to pay the $200/year fee.
  • The “Annual List” which is due every year at the same time is being raised from $125/year to $150/year.

This means that basically it will now cost $650/year plus any Registered Agent fees (our fees are $99/year and guaranteed not to raise) to maintain your Nevada Corporation. I can assure you we and the Nevada Registered Agents Association are as angry about this as our clients. This is probably going to decimate our Nevada business so we’ve come up with the following options for our clients’ that do not want to pay that fee; please remember that time is of the essence and feel free to email or call us about any of the options mentioned below.

We apologize on behalf of the shortsightedness of our Governor and Legislature and hope one of the following 6 options will be beneficial to your company.

Thanks,
Matt Knee
