Corporate Names

United Agent Services allows you to choose up to 3 names, in order of preference. We will conduct a name check before filing to see which names are available. In addition, the name must contain one of (or an abbreviation of) the following endings or words of similar import in another language:

  • Incorporated
  • Corporation
  • Limited

California state law restricts the use of certain words and phrases in business names. When you form a California corporation with United Agent Services, your business name choices are reviewed for compliance with applicable state laws.

Reserving a Corporate Name: 

If you have chosen an available name but have not yet decided on it, United Agent Services can reserve it for you. This allows you the exclusive right to use the name for 60 days, a period which may be renewed subject to certain state restrictions.
