Your LLC’s Name
The name you select for your new Arizona LLC must not sufficiently distinguishable from any other business entity registered or reserved with the Arizona Corporation Commission. The LLC name must contain, as the last words of the name, one of the following terms: “Limited Liability Company”; “LLC” or “L.L.C.”; “Limited Company”; “LC” or “L.C.”
The name may not, however, include the words “association,” corporation,” “incorporated,” and any abbreviations thereof.
Differences that aren’t different enough to your LLC’s name distinguishable include: the way LLC status is indicated; the use of symbols instead of words to designate numbers in the name (or vice versa); different articles used as introductory words (such as “the” instead of “a”); and variations in punctuation, spelling, or word order.
An LLC may apply, however, to use a name that is not distinguishable from another business entity’s name if the other entity agrees in writing to the use and submits a formal request to the state to change its own name to make it distinguishable from the startup LLC. The new LLC may also use a name that is not distinguishable from some other entity if a court has established the applicant’s right to use the name applied for.
An available LLC name can be reserved for up to 120 days for $10.
