Are you ready to create your Delaware LLC, corporation or limited partnership? Start here by entering your desired company name. We'll check your submission against the State of Delaware business name database.
This database determines if a business name is available for use in forming a Delaware company.
Harvard Business Services, Inc. has a direct, online connection to the Delaware Division of Corporations, which allows us to quickly and seamlessly determine the availability of a name for use in forming a Delaware LLC, corporation, or other entity.
When you enter your desired company name, Harvard Business Services will check the name against the State of Delaware database and promptly contact you indicating whether the name is available. If so, we invite you to form your Delaware company. If the name is unavailable, you can simply try another name. Note that this search only shows whether a name is in use for purposes of naming your Delaware entity. It does not show whether the name is in use in other states or whether it is trademarked.
No, performing the Delaware Company name search will only check the name’s availability. It will not reserve an available name. The simplest way to reserve the name so that no one else can claim it is to just form a Delaware LLC or form a Delaware Corporation using that name.
All companies that offer a Delaware company name search will verify a name’s availability against the State of Delaware database. Therefore, you only have to check with us. We perform the name check for free and can help guide you through the next steps of forming your Delaware LLC or Corporation.
When you actually form an LLC, the letters LLC or L.L.C. or the full words Limited Liability Company must be included in the business name. Likewise, a corporation being formed must include the appropriate suffix to indicate its business type. However, when you perform your Delaware company name search, you only need to include the company name you want without the suffix.
