Frequently Asked Questions
What are the state naming guidelines for creating an LLC in Arizona?
Creating an LLC in Arizona requires adherence to specific state naming guidelines. The name of your LLC must include either LLC, L.L.C., or Limited Liability Company.
It should not contain words such as corporation, associated, or incorporated or their abbreviations. The name should also avoid restricted words like university, attorney, or bank unless licensed individuals are involved and additional approval has been sought.
Furthermore, words that could cause confusion between your LLC and a state or federal agency, such as treasury, FBI, or secret service, should not be included.
Once you've chosen a name, you can reserve it for up to 120 days for a $10 filing fee. However, before doing so, it's recommended to search the online database maintained by the Corporation Commission or contact them directly to ensure the name you want is not already in use in Arizona.
It's also advisable to check the availability of the URL for your preferred name and purchase the domain to build a website for your business.
In addition to naming, Arizona LLCs must designate a statutory agent to handle legal paperwork, submit articles of organization to the state's Corporate Commission, publish a notice of organization in an approved newspaper, and create an operating agreement.
