Registering an LLC Name

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

  • Must contain, as the last words of the name, the words “limited liability company” or “limited company”, or the abbreviation “LLC,” “LC” or the designation “LLC” or “LC”
  • May contain the name of a member or manager
  • May contain the following words: “company,” “association,” “club,” “foundation,” “fund,” “institute,” “society,” “union,” “syndicate,” “limited” or “trust” (or abbreviations of like import)
  • Must be distinguishable (not the same or deceptively similar to) from the name of any corporation, limited partnership, business trust, registered limited liability partnership or LLC reserved, registered, formed or organized under the laws of the state of Kansas or qualified to do business or registered as a foreign corporation, foreign limited partnership or foreign LLC in the state of Kansas

A LLC may register a name that is not distinguishable from another entity if the other entity consents in writing and files such consent with the secretary of state.

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.
