Registering an LLC Name

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

  • Must contain, as the last words of the name, the words “limited liability company”, “limited company”, or the abbreviation “L.L.C.”, “L.C.”, “LLC” or “LC”
  • May contain the name of a member or manager
  • Must be distinguishable from (not the same or deceptively similar to) the name of any corporation, limited partnership or LLC reserved or organized under the laws of the commonwealth or licensed or registered as a foreign corporation, foreign limited partnership or foreign LLC in the commonwealth, except with the written consent of said corporation, limited partnership or LLC previously filed with the state secretary

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.
