What Is an Annual List?
In Nevada, an annual list (also known as an annual report) is a regular filing that your LLC must complete every year to update your business information, including:
- Names and addresses of LLC members or managing members
The purpose of this report 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 state taxes.
How Do I File an Annual List?
You can file your Nevada LLC annual list with the Secretary of State. You will need your Nevada Business Identification Number (NVID) or your state entity number, which you can find with a business entity search. Online filers must have a Silverflume account.
A state business license application fee is also required at the time of filing.

Due Date: Nevada LLC annual lists are due every year by the end of the business’s anniversary month (i.e., the month when you initially registered your LLC with the state).
Late Filings: Any annual list received after the due date will result in a $175 penalty fee. Further failure to file an annual list could result in the dissolution of your Nevada LLC.
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 late filing penalties: The Secretary of State can dissolve a Nevada LLC if it does not 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.
- Gain flexibility: A registered agent service can receive and send documents for your LLC during regular business hours so that you don’t have to be on the job from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 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.
- Maintain privacy: Using a registered agent service allows you to keep your personal address off of public records, ensuring your privacy. Additionally, if someone sues your LLC, the lawsuit will be served to the registered agent’s address rather than your place of business.
