It is highly recommended that one should perform a Business Entity Search before processing a business registration. A business entity must be established under a business name that is unique. It should also be easily distinguished from other entities.
There are two (2) ways to perform a Business Entity Search for a Las Vegas Business.
You can search the Clark County’s Business License Department’s database of business licenses.
You may also conduct an entity search via SilverFlume’s website.
In this article, we will teach you how to conduct a business entity search via SilverFlume.
Visit Nevada’s first stop for business registration by clicking the link for Nevada’s business portal, SilverFlume at https://esos.nv.gov/EntitySearch/OnlineEntitySearch. You may also manually type the same on the address bar of your browser and hit enter.
Key in the Search String
At SilverFlume’s Business search page, type the search string in the name field and choose your preferred search option among the available choices:
Business Entity Search (Entity number, NV business ID number, officer name, registered agent name)
Marks Search Criteria (Mark number, Goods and services, and applicant name)
Advanced Search Options (Type and Status)
Click the “Search” button to check and verify the availability of the business name that you intend for business registration or for reservation.
Performing a search is an error checking mechanism to ensure that your business does not have an existing record with the Clark County Business License Department and with Nevada’s Business Portal. By taking this step, you are assured of going through the hassle of processing a rework and other refiling procedures to save more on your budget. Now that you have confirmed that the Business Entity name that you have is available for use, you may now proceed in CREATING AN ONLINE ACCOUNT.
