Fictitious Business Name/DBA in Nevada

Last updated Friday, February 12, 2021

 

It is required by Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS 602.010) that every person doing business in the state of Nevada under an assumed or fictitious name that is different from the legal name of each person who owns an interest in the business must file with the County Clerk of each county in which the business is being conducted a certificate containing the information required by the above Nevada Revised Statute.

 

In order to conduct business in Nevada under a name that is different from your own, you must file a form with the county clerk.  This is known either as a “fictitious firm name” or “DBA” (Doing Business As).  For example, if your legal name is John Doe, and you want to open Joe's Hardware as a sole proprietor, you need to register “Joe's Hardware” as a DBA before you open your business.  This will enable you to get a business license and also to open a business bank account. A corporation or LLC may also need to file a DBA in order to conduct business in Nevada under a name different from the official name on the incorporation or organization filing.  For example, if Joe's Widgets, Inc. wishes to open a business called Gadget World , they need to register “Gadget World” as a DBA. Most banks require a Nevada DBA registration and a certified copy of the Nevada DBA before opening a business bank account. In most Nevada counties, the application form for a DBA is only one page long, costs $20 to file, and does not expire for 5 years.

 

            Nevada Revised Statutes: Section 602.010 Filing of certificate with county clerk

 

·        Every person doing business in this state under an assumed or fictitious name that is in any way different from the legal name of each person who owns an interest in the business, must file with the County Clerk of each county in which the business is being conducted, a certificate containing the information required by NRS 602.020.

·        A person intending to conduct a business under an assumed or fictitious name may, before initiating the conduct of the business, file a certificate with the County Clerk of each county in which the business is intended to be conducted.

·        If the Board of County Commissioners of a county has adopted an ordinance pursuant to NRS 602.035, a certificate filed pursuant to this section expires 5 years after it is filed with the County Clerk.

 

The filing of a fictitious firm name does not give exclusive rights to the use of that name.  An FFN filing is also required by the Business License office before issuing a business license under a fictitious name. A person doing business in this state without complying with the requirements of this chapter or having falsely filed a certificate of termination is guilty of a misdemeanor (NRS 602.090). Each individual business name must have a separate filing.
