Why Do I Need to Add “LLC” after my new LLC’s name?

State laws require new corporations to contain a suffix that clearly indicates to the outside world that they are incorporated as an LLC.   It is a requirement that  limited liability company names contain one of the available suffixes, which are:

  • Limited Liability Company
  • LLC
  • L.L.C.

If the correct suffix is not used after the new business’s name, the Secretary of State will reject the founder’s attempt to incorporate the business.
