The Nevada Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation, Employment Security Division, wants to make starting your business as easy as possible. Online registration is part of our effort to simplify your registration process and help you get your business started and on the road to success.

If you pay compensation to individuals for their services, you may be liable for Unemployment Insurance (UI) taxes. If you are liable for UI taxes, the online application enables you to obtain an Employer Account Number to ensure that your quarterly UI tax reports and payments are credited promptly and accurately.
