Pursuant to NRS Chapter 77, effective October 1, 2013, any registered agent with 10 or more represented entities is considered a commercial registered agent and must register with the Secretary of State by filing a Commercial Registered Agent Registration Statement. Existing Commercial Registered Agents were required to resubmit the Commercial Registered Agent Registration Statement by October 31, 2013, in order to comply with the latest NRS changes. Agents with 10, or more, entities are required to submit the statement within 30 days of reaching the 10-entity threshold. Failure to return the registration may result in further action, including revocation of the authority to serve as a registered agent. There is no fee for filing the Commercial Registered Agent Registration Statement.

Once filed as a Commercial Registered Agent, an agent will receive monthly electronic notification of all entities due for that filing period and past-due and those in default and revoked status. The Commercial Registered Agents will also have access to pre-populated lists that may be electronically forwarded to clients.
A change of information registered in the Commercial Registered Agent Registration Statement (name, address, etc.) may be done by submitting a single Statement of Change by Commercial Registered Agent form and only one filing fee. Such a change will be reflected on each entity represented by the agent.
Advantages of being a Commercial Registered Agent:
Significant cost-savings: If you need to change your address and name, only one form and one fee are required to update the information on all entities you represent (without an officer's signature) as opposed to one form (requiring an officer's signature) and one fee per entity.
Access to past email notifications and pre-populated lists
Represent your clients as a Commercial Registered Agent
Additional condition and requirements:
Commercial Registered Agents must provide their full legal name as filed with the Secretary of State and disclose all DBAs, fictitious firm names and websites or domains by which the commercial registered agent will do business in Nevada.
The commercial registered agent must also provide the name and contact information of an individual who has the authority to act on behalf of the commercial registered agent, meaning a natural person who is a manager, owner, officer, director or other natural person with decision-making authority in the day-to-day operations of the commercial registered agent.
NRS Chapter 77 also requires a declaration that the person registering as a commercial registered agent or each director, officer or managing agent of a commercial registered agent has not been convicted of a felony, and if convicted, has had his or her civil rights restored, or had their ability to serve as a registered agent denied or revoked by appropriate authority of this state or another state or enjoined by a court of competent jurisdiction from serving as a registered agent because the individual engaged in conduct as a registered agent that was intended to or likely to deceive or defraud the public.
