Experts in Nebraska Corporation Publishing

Some states require additional filings or steps at the time of formation, such as a county level filing, publishing notice of the formation in a local newspaper or an initial report filing. Nebraska requires the following:

Publication Requirement:

  • Nebraska requires all business entities to publish notice of the formation for three consecutive weeks in a publication (i.e. newspaper) in the county of the principal business location. If the company does not have a principal business location in Nebraska, the notice may be published in the county of the registered agent’s location. Proof of publication must be filed with the Secretary of State.
  • The State of Nebraska requires all new business entities to publish information from their formation documents. In addition, all amendments, mergers, dissolutions and share exchanges must also be published in the same manner noted above.
