Choosing a business name can be one of the most exciting and important things you do for your business. Before you rush out and order signage, business cards, or setup your website, you’ll need to make sure your business name is legally available.
Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
CorpNet.com, a leading online business document filing company that helps entrepreneurs start a business and keep a business in compliance, announced the availability of its Business Name Search, a complimentary online feature that lets new business owners check if their proposed business name will be available in the state they’re planning to register in.
CorpNet’s complimentary Business Name Search tool is featured right on the CorpNet.com home page. To start a search, an entrepreneur simply needs to enter the name they are interested in, the state where they want to register the name in, the business type (Corporation, LLC, etc.), along with their contact information. A CorpNet.com representative will search the appropriate state database to determine if the name is available or is in conflict with an existing business. In addition to checking conflicts, CorpNet.com’s representatives will determine if a proposed name properly meets the state’s naming criteria.
“Choosing a business name can be one of the most exciting and important things you do for your business,” said Nellie Akalp, CorpNet.com’s CEO. “However, before you rush out and order signage, business cards, or setup your website, you’ll need to make sure your business name is legally available to use. Our Business Name Search is the perfect first step towards that; best of all, it’s 100% free and takes only seconds for a busy entrepreneur to set up.”
Results will be provided within 24 hours when using the online form. Business owners can also choose to call CorpNet.com directly at 1-888-449-2638 (during Pacific Time business hours) to have a representative conduct the search live for immediate results.
The business name search is a critical first step when registering a business. If a person submits a filing to the state to form an LLC, Corporation, or DBA with a name that is not available or permissible in that state, the filing will be rejected.
