  • Disadvantages of Nevada company registration

    1. Nevada is one of the most expensive states to register a business in the USA. Furthermore, business entities are required to pay annual renewal fees such as Business License Fee and annual report fees, which are also above the national average;
    2. Although there is no public register of shareholders and owners, during incorporation, business entities are required to i) name an initial director or manager in the articles of association, which will be available at the company’s public records, and ii) to submit an initial list of officers and members, which will also be available to the public;
    3. Furthermore, business entities are required to submit an annual list of officers and directors to the company registrar. However, the state allows the appointment of nominee directors and officers. If required, Healy Consultants can provide nominee director/manager services to support our Clients’ business formation;
    4. Finally, due to its advantageous taxation regime and protection of shareholder’s identities, Nevada may be seen as a not so reputable state, therefore some businesses registered in the state might face issues when dealing with Clients and suppliers.
