Firm Registration and Annual Renewal

Nevada Business License

Every business entity planning to do business in the State of Nevada, must obtain a Nevada State Business License.

If you have not yet obtained a Nevada State Business License, please go to Nevada’s business portal, Silverflume. Also, please see Business Name Authorization below.

Initial Firm Registration

Before a business entity can offer or provide engineering or land surveying services in Nevada, it must register with the Nevada Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors. The business entity must employ a Nevada licensed professional before submitting a Firm Registration form. The annual fee for Firm Registration is $50.00.

A Natural Person (example: someone doing business as John Doe, PE), who is licensed by the Nevada board, is not required to register as a firm with the board before providing services.

To register a firm, complete the form (button below), and email it to board@boe.state.nv.us. After we receive the completed Firm Registration form, we will send you an email acknowledgement with an assigned Nevada board Company ID # and a link to submit registration payment online.
