Naming Your Utah LLC

Your Utah business entity needs the perfect name, and we’re here to help. In this section we’ll guide you through searching the UT Division of Corporations business register, tell you about the rules for naming your business, describe the “Doing Business As” process and get you started with registering your LLC.

Utah Business Entity Search

You should start naming your business by completing a “Utah business entity search” with the Division of Corporations. They have a helpful tool on their website that lets you search the register of Utah LLCs and corporations to see if someone already has your desired business name.

If the business name is already used, that means it’s not available and you won’t be able to register it. Try searching for a different business name instead.

Utah LLC Naming Rules

Once you’ve decided on a name for your LLC and checked business name availability, you’ll need to meet LLC naming rules. These rules typically apply to all LLCs, no matter in what state they are formed.

Utah LLC Trade and “Doing Business As” (DBA) Names

You might choose to do business under a different name from your legal LLC name. In Utah, doing business under a different name is known as a “Trade” or “Doing Business As” name. You might choose to use a different name from your formal LLC name for a variety of reasons.

For example, your LLC might be called Utah Maple Syrup Tapping Company LLC and you have a chain called Miraculous Maple. You should file a Trade/DBA form to let the Utah Division of Corporations know.

Name Registration with the Utah Division of Corporations

Once you’ve searched for your Utah business name, checked availability, followed the naming rules and decided whether you need a fictitious name, you can register your UT LLC name. There are a couple of ways to do this:

  • 1

    If you don’t want to form your LLC right now, you can reserve the business name with the Utah Division of Corporations. You will need to complete a “Application to Reserve a Specified Business Name” and file it with the UT SOS. You do not need to reserve a name if you are forming your business right away.

Trademarks and Service Marks

You must be careful that your Utah LLC name does not infringe on the trademark or service mark of another business. The easiest way to make sure your proposed business name does not infringe is to carry out a trademark search through Incfile. If it doesn’t infringe, you can even register it as a trademark yourself.
