(Carson City, NV; Dec. 13, 2010) – Secretary of State Ross Miller said today his office has reached another major milestone in its goal to provide more convenient, streamlined online services for Nevada businesses. New companies can now file their Articles of Incorporation or Articles of Organization online at Upon successful completion of the online filing, companies will get immediate confirmation and a copy of their new documents. The public information about the new entity will also be immediately available on the Secretary of State’s website.

Starting today, domestic (Nevada), corporations and Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) can file their Articles of Incorporation/Organization online. All new corporations and LLC’s can also file their initial list of officers or members and apply for and receive their annual business license in the same online visit.

“I’m very pleased that we’re able to follow through on our pledge to help improve Nevada’s status as one of the most business-friendly states in the country,” Secretary Miller said in announcing the new service. “By modernizing and streamlining business services at no additional cost to the private sector, we provide just that much more incentive for businesses to file their organizational documents right here in Nevada.
