1. If a registered agent knows or reasonably should know that the entity for which he or she is the registered agent engages in any business activity that is regulated pursuant to chapter 604A or 675 of NRS and the registered agent or a subsidiary or affiliate of the registered agent performs any service for the represented entity other than:

(a) Delivering documents for filing to state or local governmental entities;

(b) Forwarding unopened mail;

(c) Any service described in NRS 77.400;

(d) Accounting services incidental to the formation of the entity for which he or she serves as registered agent provided in accordance with chapter 628 of NRS; or

(e) Legal services incidental to the formation of the entity for which he or she serves as registered agent if the registered agent is an attorney who is licensed to practice law in this State or performs such services under the supervision of an attorney who is licensed to practice law in this State,

the registered agent shall verify with the Division of Financial Institutions of the Department of Business and Industry that the represented entity is licensed pursuant to chapter 604A or 675 of NRS, as applicable.

2. Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, if a registered agent determines pursuant to subsection 1 that the represented entity is not licensed as required pursuant to chapter 604A or 675 of NRS, the registered agent shall notify the Commissioner of Financial Institutions. This subsection does not require a registered agent who is an attorney to notify the Commissioner if doing so would violate any privilege pursuant to NRS 49.035 to 49.115, inclusive, or the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct.

3. A registered agent who accepts an appointment to act as the registered agent for a represented entity whom the registered agent knows or reasonably should know engages in business activities which are regulated pursuant to chapter 604A or 675 of NRS shall not perform any financial transactions on behalf of the represented entity in his or her capacity as registered agent.
