The contractor licensing requirements in Nevada are very similar to the requirements in California meaning they are very strict about licensing and enforcement. The state requires most providers of construction and renovation services to obtain a license before they can begin operations in the state. The only notable exceptions are when you’re a residential property owner conducting minor home improvement measures without any intention of leasing or selling your property, or if you’re a contractor conducting a repair amounting to a value of less than $1,000.
All contractors, subcontractors, and specialty contractors intending to operate in Nevada are encouraged to visit the Nevada State Contractors Board before bidding or starting on a project.
The workers’ compensation requirements in Nevada are also straightforward: All employers with at least one employee must carry coverage. Subcontractors, independent contractors, and their employees must also be covered (unless they’re independent enterprises). Construction businesses are required to have workers’ compensation insurance.
