Will you be your own Registered Agent?

Most business owners prefer to be THEIR OWN AGENT for their Corporation. They don't want to pay annual fees & forwarding costs to someone else to receive free compliance reminders from the State - and because THEY want to be the party receiving legal notices (like employee garnishments or tax notifications) for the company - not a lawyer or some person or company they haven't even met.

Most incorporators will designate "no par value" in states where it is permitted (such as in Nevada). More The value and number of shares can be changed later - even after the entity is incorporated.

Par value is an arbitrary amount assigned to the shares of stock. It does not refer to the actual purchase price required for the shares, but shares cannot be sold at less than the stated par value.

shares of common stock having par value. You can designate the number of authorized shares and the par value of each share on this line.

WARNING: Nevada bases the filing fee on the shares value.

The filing fees are calculated on the product of the number of authorized shares multiplied by the par value. If "no par value" is used, then the number of athorized shares is multiplied by $1.

Fees are Calculated as Follows:
$1 to $75K value of authorized shares = $75.00 filing fee
$75K to $200K value of authorized shares = $175 filing fee
$200K to $500K value of authorized shares = $275 filing fee
$500K to $1,000,000 value of authorized shares = $375 filing fee
If over $1,000,000, the fee increases incrementally up to $35,000.00

When will shares be sold and stock certificates issued?
Please indicate if the directors will authorize the sale and issuance of stock immediately after incorporating or if it will be
conducted in the future.
More on issuance of corporate shares Sale of shares and issuance of stock certificates at this juncture may not be desirable from an economic or strategic standpoint
in some instances.

While Articles of Incorporation must designate the number of authorized shares, it's not required that shares be issued or sold to legally incorporate.

If the directors will sell shares and issue stock certificates immediately upon incorporating, we will need the shareholders names, amounts of capital contributions and characteristics of the contributions (i.e. cash, services or property).

Ordering one of our corporate kits is also recommended if you are going to issue shares as soon as the Articles are filed.
