It is hard to overemphasize the importance of a good name for your business. A wise name choice will pay dividends for the life of the business. It will be very valuable if you can select a name that is easy to remember and delivers the right message to potential customers. Of course, you should also consider the availability of an appropriate web site address (URL) since you will likely want to take advantage of the Internet. Finding a good name that is available both on the Internet and in your state will not be easy but it will be worth your effort.
To be acceptable, the name of a corporation, limited liability company (LLC), limited partnership (LP), limited liability partnership (LLP), or nonprofit corporation must be one that is unique and can be distinguished from others recorded by the state. MaxFilings asks you to submit a second alternate name in case your first choice is not available. Note that this is only a preliminary state name check and the state's approval is not official until the formation documents are processed.
A FREE name check with your state of formation, to make sure a name you want is available, is included as part of our business formation service packages or, if you like, MaxFilings will do a name check alone.
