WHAT IS AN ANNUAL LIST?
In Nevada, an annual list is a regular filing that your LLC must complete every year. The report is essentially updating your registered agent address and paying a $150 fee for processing the annual list and a $200 fee for the renewal of your business license. All LLCs are required to file their annual list with the Nevada Secretary of State.
Like an annual report in other states, the purpose of an annual list is to keep your business records up to date with the state of Nevada. This allows creditors and other interested parties to look up your business address in case they need to contact you. The government uses this information to track the payment of your LLC's state taxes.

SHOULD I USE A REGISTERED AGENT SERVICE?
A registered agent is a person or business nominated by your company to officially receive and send papers on your behalf. By using a registered agent service, you can ensure that your LLC's reports are always filed on time to the appropriate government agency. Here are the three main advantages to using a registered agent service for your LLC:
Avoid penalties of late filing: In Nevada, an LLC may be dissolved or revoked after one year for failure to file an annual list. A registered agent service will notify you when reports are due, and they can also submit the filing for you for an additional fee.
You will have flexibility: A registered agent can receive and send documents for your LLC during regular business hours, so that you have to be on the job from 9-5 every week. You can also use a registered agent service to form an LLC in other states where you don't already have an established business presence.
You will have privacy: Using a registered agent allows you to keep your personal address off of public records, ensuring your personal privacy. Additionally, in the unfortunate event that your LLC is sued, the lawsuit will be served to the registered agent address, rather than at your place of business in front of your employees.
