Forming a New Jersey Limited Liability Company

When you form your New Jersey LLC with United Agent Services, we prepare and file your articles of organization with the Corporations Division of the New Jersey Secretary of State. We also conduct a name search for your New Jersey LLC to assist you in the preparation of your operating agreement and other customized services corresponding to your needs. Once your articles of organization have been successfully filed, your New Jersey LLC has been formed and begins its existence as a legal business entity.

Registering a Limited Liability Company Name

Choosing a business name is one of the first steps in the process of forming your New Jersey Limited Liability Company. The name that you choose:

  • Must contain, as the last words of the name, the words “Limited Liability Company” or the abbreviation “L.L.C.”
  • May contain the name of a member or manager
  • Must be distinguishable from the name of any New Jersey limited liability company, corporation, limited partnership or business trust that is reserved, registered, formed, organized or qualified to do business under the laws of this State
  • Must not contain any word or phrase, or any abbreviation or derivative thereof, the use of which is prohibited or restricted by any other statute of this State (unless the restrictions have been complied with)

A New Jersey LLC may apply to the secretary of state for authorization to use a name that is not distinguishable with the written consent of the other corporation, limited partnership, business trust or limited liability company, which written consent shall be filed 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 for your New Jersey Limited Liability Company before filing to see which names are available.
