How To Check Availability of a Business Name

How do you check availability of a business name?

Legal How ToSo you have found the perfect name for your business.  Question is, did anyone beat you to it?  Checking name availability is a two step process. First you must check with the state in which you want to form the business.  In Utah you can go to the Utah Division of Corporations website  and check for the name.  I prefer this link because it also shows you other companies with similar names in addition to the name you search for.


The second step is to see if the name violates a Trade Name registered with the Federal patent and trademark office HERE


If you pass both tests then odds are you are good to go.    Give us a call if we can help you push your dream.
