Business Structure: Decide which business structure you want:

  • Sole Proprietorship
  • LLC (Limited Liability Company)
  • Regular C Corporation
  • Partnership

Business Name:: Fictitious and Assumed Names

For a Sole Proprietorship, if you use a business name other than your personal name, you are required to file the name as a fictitious , assumed or doing-business-as name. This is normally filed with the County Clerk.

For a Corporation, LLC or a Partnership, you would most likely file your Articles of Organization with the Secretary of State at the State level.

For whichever business structure you choose, you must find a name that is not taken by another company. I can help to some extent on some of these issues.

If you can come up with 3-4 names that you like, you may email them to me for my review and comments.
