TYPES OF PROTECTION AND THE IMPORTANCE OF YOUR NEVADA BUSINESS LAWYER
In order to incorporate in Nevada a firm, or its shareholders must submit its articles of incorporation with the Secretary of State. The articles of incorporation establish the general nature of the corporation, the amount of stock it is authorized to issue, and the names and addresses of its directors.
Most corporations are registered as either a stock or non-stock corporation. Stock corporations sell stock to generate capital and are usually for-profit. Non-stock corporations do not have stockholders, but may have members with voting rights in the corporation. In addition, corporations can take the form of for-profit or non-profit, publicly traded, privately held, closely held, or closed altogether. The wide variety of ways in which a corporation can be instituted is just one of the major reasons for their popularity as a Nevada business entity. Prior to making any decision regarding incorporation we highly recommend that you contact a Nevada business lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected and that the entity you choose best suits your business goals.
