Choosing a Corporation Name
Your new corporation’s name must be distinguishable from the name of any other registered or reserved Colorado business entity. It must also contain the words “incorporated,” “corporation,” “limited,” or “company,” or an abbreviation of these same terms. It may also not contain language stating or implying that it is organized for a purpose other than one permitted by state law or stated in its articles of incorporation.
If your corporate name is not considered to be distinguishable from one already on file with the state or in use, it’s not enough to merely change some punctuation, a definite or indefinite article (such as “a,” “an,” or “the”), or the status designator (“corporation,” “company,” “incorporated,” “limited,” etc.).
Corporate names can be reserved with the state for up to 120 days at a time for $10.
