Choosing a Corporation Name
Choosing a name for your new Utah corporation is one of the first official steps toward actually conducting business in the state. The corporate name you choose must be readily distinguishable from all other registered and reserved business entities in Utah records and it may not state or imply that the corporation is organized for some purpose other than specified in its articles of incorporation or permitted by state law, and it must not state or imply that it is associated with the government.
Your new business’ name must include one of the following words, an abbreviation thereof, or words of similar meaning in another language: “Incorporated,” “Corporation,” or “Company.”
An available corporate name may be reserved for up to four months by for a $22 fee.
Utah state law also restricts the use of certain words and phrases in business names, such as “Olympics,” “Olympiad,” “College,” “University,” and “Institute.”
