When looking to incorporate a business there are several states that are frequently considered for this process. One of, if not the top state that’s often considered for incorporating out of is Nevada. This is because of the benefits that business owners receive when incorporating out of the state of Nevada. Some of the main benefits include having to pay no corporate income tax, no taxes on corporate shares, and no annual franchise taxes. Nevada corporate law was also based on the Delaware model to minimize the time, cost, and risks associated with commercial litigation. The previously mentioned benefits alone are reason enough to strongly consider Nevada as the state for incorporating your business.
There’s no doubt that forming a corporation in Nevada would be a smart business move; however, there’s quite a bit involved in the application process. One of the initial steps involved in the process of forming a Nevada corporation is the filing of your company’s Articles of Incorporation. As mandated by the state, if you’re looking to form a corporation in the state of Nevada you will have to file Articles of Incorporation with the Nevada Secretary of State. This article will further discuss exactly what Articles of Incorporation are and why your Nevada-formed corporation would need a Nevada Articles of Incorporation Apostille.
Articles of incorporation are a set of formal documents filed with the governing body of a state to legally document the creation of a specified corporation. Articles of incorporation generally must contain the following pertinent information:
● The legal name of the corporation
● Type of entity being formed
● Purpose of the corporation
● Both corporate mailing and physical street address
● Name, street, and mailing address of the corporation’s selected registered agent
● The name, street, and mailing address of the incorporator
● The names and mailing addresses of all corporate directors
● The number of shares authorized by the corporation as well as their class, rights, and restrictions

Many company’s at some point or another become involved in conducting business abroad. If your Nevada corporation is going to be conducting any type of business internationally, the authenticity of your company’s Articles of Incorporation will frequently need to be verified. This is the purpose of a Nevada Articles of Incorporation Apostille.
A Nevada Articles of Incorporation Apostille is a one-page document issued under the Great Seal of the State of Nevada by the Nevada Secretary of State. The one-page document or Apostille is attached to a certified copy of your company’s Articles of Incorporation. The Articles of Incorporation Apostille will verify your company’s information when conducting business in foreign countries.
