Fictitious Firm Names


It is required by Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS 602.010) that every person doing business in the state of Nevada under an assumed or fictitious name that is different from the legal name of each person who owns an interest in the business must file with the County Clerk of each county in which the business is being conducted a certificate containing the information required by the above Nevada Revised Statute. The filing of a fictitious firm name does not give exclusive rights to the use of that name.  An FFN filing is also required by the Business License office before issuing a business license under a fictitious name. A person doing business in this state without complying with the requirements of this chapter or having falsely filed a certificate of termination is guilty of a misdemeanor (NRS 602.090). Each individual business name must have a separate filing.  Multiple fictitious names cannot be included on a single certificate.

Locations and hours of operation can be accessed here. You may also select the Contact Us tab to the left of this page located under Clerk.

Clark County Code 7.24 requires that fictitious firm names be renewed five years from the date of filing. Reminder notices will be sent to the most recent mailing address on file with our office approximately 60 days prior to the expiration date.

A search of the records is advised prior to filing.  Fictitious Name Search 
Fictitious Firm Names are not exclusive.

Please see our Fees page for information on accepted forms of payment.

Note:  NRS Chapter 19 requires that we charge fees for copies and a records search.  A number of requests for copies of records are received through the mail, and frequently customers will pay more than what is required by statute. Overpayments of $10 or less will not be refunded by this office except upon specific request of the customer.  Requests for refund of overpayment must be submitted in writing within 60 days of receipt date and include the receipt number.  If submitted by mail, enclose a return self-addressed stamped envelope with your payment and completed form so that we can mail your Filing Notice to you.
