Registering Your Business Before Getting A Document Preparer Bond In Nevada

Before you get a document preparer bond in Nevada, you’ll need to register your document preparation service with the Nevada Secretary of State. You can learn more about submitting your registration on the Nevada Secretary of State website’s Application Process page.

According to the page, if you don’t have an established account in SilverFlume business portal, you’ll have to create one. Once you are ready, you will submit an online application and pay a $100 non-refundable fee.

The page also states that after you’ve met all the eligibility requirements, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to file the bond. Hold off on buying the bond until you are instructed to get one.

Also, if you’re already covered under your employer’s business entity bond, make sure your employer notifies the Nevada Secretary of State office about your coverage.

Once you’ve completed all these steps and your application is approved, you’ll get a new certificate of registration.

IMPORTANT: To offer a Document Preparation Service, please also see the NVSOS Document Preparation Services Qualifications page. You have to meet the qualifications before applying.

Compliance with NRS Chapter 240A

Once you’re registered, the next task is staying compliant with the guidelines laid out in Chapter 240A – Document Preparation Services.

While Chapter 240A covers a lot of ground, one of the most important things to remember is to explain to your clients that you’re not an attorney and can’t provide legal advice.

You’ll also want to keep detailed records of all your transactions and communications with clients. This helps protect you and your clients in case any issues come up down the line.
