Nebraska Trade Name Publishing Requirements
In accordance with the requirements of Nebraska Statute §87-219 the registration of a trade name shall be published once in a newspaper of general circulation published in the city or village where the business is to be located, or, if there is no newspaper in the city or village, in some newspaper of general circulation in the county. Proof of such publication shall be filed in the office of the Secretary of State within 45 days from the date of registration.
If proof of publication is not filed with the Secretary of State within the 45 days, the registration shall be canceled by the Secretary of State.
You registered a trade name with the state of Nebraska, but you may not have published your trade name in an approved newspaper. Registering your trade name with the state of Nebraska and publishing your trade name in an approved newspaper is not the same. If you published your trade name in an approved newspaper you should have received a notarized affidavit of publication which is a copy of the published announcement from the newspaper. If you do not have this affidavit then you need to publish your trade name in an approved newspaper.
In compliance with the statute, Business Name Publishing, at your request, drafts and publishes the announcement with a newspaper in the county where your business is located and files the notarized affidavit of publication with the Secretary of State in accordance with Nebraska Law.
Please complete the Nebraska Business Name Publishing form and we will publish your business name so that you can be in compliance with the State of Nebraska Statute.
