If you are not quite ready to submit your organizing documents to register your business, applying for a name reservation could save a lot of trouble and expense. A lot of work goes into the first stages of preparing to open a business.
You don't want to be one of the people who hired an attorney to prepare organizing documents and ordered business cards, letterhead and promotional signs, only to find the chosen name is unavailable.
A name reservation reserves and protects the company name you have chosen for 120 days from filing with Secretary of State. Our staff adds the reserved name to the business organizations database. It will then appear when a search is performed for name availability.
