Registering an LLC Name

Choosing a business name is one of the first steps in the process of forming your Georgia LLC. The name that you choose:

  • Must contain, as the last words of the name, the words “limited liability company” or “limited company” (it being permitted to abbreviate the word “limited” as “ltd.” and the word “company” as “co.”) or the abbreviation “L.L.C.”, “LLC”, “L.C.” or “LC”
  • Must be distinguishable (not the same as or deceptively similar to) the name of any domestic or foreign corporation, LLC, or limited partnership having a certificate of authority to transact business in this state or any nonprofit corporation, professional corporation, or professional association, domestic or foreign, on file with the Secretary of State; or any name reserved or registered under this title
  • Must not contain in any instance exceed 80 characters, including spaces and punctuation

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.

How to Register

Once you have chosen an available name, United Agent Services can help you register your name with the state.
