Choosing a Corporation Name
Your new corporation’s business name must be distinguishable from that of any other Idaho business entity registered or reserved with the state. The name may not include language that states or implies that the corporation is organized for some purpose other than one permitted by state law or than stated in its articles of incorporation. The fee for registering a business name with the state is $25.
The name must also include the words “incorporated,” “corporation,” “limited,” or “company,” or an abbreviation of one of those terms. However, if the word “company” or its abbreviation is used, it cannot be immediately preceded by the word “and” or by an abbreviation of or symbol representing the word “and.”
An available corporate name can be reserved with the Corporations Division of the Secretary of State’s office state for a nonrenewable four-month period for $20.
