One of the first things you should do if you are starting a business is to make sure that the name you want to use is actually available in your state.
And even if you are not quite ready to start your business, but you really like the name you have chosen, many states will allow you to reserve your name for a nominal fee.
So if you are dead-set on a certain name, then you should run a quick name search to make sure it’s available. Here are some of the benefits to running a name search now:
- Get peace of mind in knowing that your name is not currently being used
- Avoid spending time and money developing products and purchasing inventory with a name that you can’t use
- If your name is available, you can reserve your name so that nobody else can take it
When you set up an LLC or business entity through our website, we will automatically check to see if your name is available.
