Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if the State of Oregon rejects your LLC name application?

If the State of Oregon rejects your LLC name application, it means that the name you've chosen for your LLC is either identical or confusingly similar to an existing business entity's name. The Oregon Secretary of State, who gives the final approval for your LLC, has strict rules related to the availability of LLC names. When your application is rejected, your fee will be reserved, and you will be given a 45-day period to create a new LLC name and resubmit your application. To decrease the likelihood of your application being rejected, you can contact the Oregon Corporation Division by phone to request a preliminary check of your LLC name. You can also reserve your LLC name for a 120-day period by filing an application for name reservation, which requires a nonrefundable fee of $100. After choosing your LLC name, it's recommended to research if your name can be used for a URL. Many companies purchase a domain name to prevent others from acquiring it. Securing your domain name in advance is a good idea, even if you don't plan to use a website for your company. It's also advisable to choose an LLC name that can be used for a strong professional email address.
