Nevada Based Wholesalers

Each new business operating on a retail or wholesale basis must secure either a Wholesale or Retail License, depending on the specific nature of the business. Some states allow businesses to use the federal tax ID number in lieu of a Nevada Wholesale License, but such states are in the minority. Several state tax ID numbers exist, with the Wholesale or Retail License essentially being a state tax number allowing businesses to buy at wholesale prices and sell at retail prices. The taxes collected from customers during retail sales are then remitted to the state.

Understanding the Nevada Wholesale License A Nevada Wholesale License serves as a sales tax ID number. It is essential for businesses that wish to buy or sell goods wholesale. This license goes by several names including Seller’s Permit, Resale ID, Reseller License, or State ID.

For instance, consider Edward, who sets up an online business from his home. If Edward wishes to buy products at wholesale prices and sell them at retail prices online, he needs a seller’s permit. This permit also encompasses a resale certificate that he’ll present to the wholesaler, proving his entitlement to buy products without sales tax due to his wholesale status. 

Let’s say Edward purchases 500 items for $1 each. Instead of paying an additional sales tax on his purchase, he avoids it due to his wholesale status. However, when selling these items online, Edward will typically need to charge a sales tax (around 8% in most states) and collect this to remit to the government.
