Updated time: 08 Jan, 2019, 12:10 (UTC+08:00)

When registering a company, you will be coming up with a name that combines the title of your company with an ending suffix.

The ending suffix informs people what kind of company this is. For example, "One IBC, Inc." has the suffix "Inc." which is an abbreviation of Incorporated.

Delaware Company name for both LLC and Corporation

The Incorporated suffix means this company is a Corporation.

Likewise, "One IBC, LLC" has the suffix "LLC" which is an abbreviation of Limited Liability Company. An LLC is a different type of entity than a Corporation.

You are required to use a suffix at the end of your company name (title). It is not possible to register your company without a suffix.

The following suffixes are available for use by LLC's in Delaware:

Limited Liability Company

LLC

L.L.C.

The following suffixes are available for Delaware Corporations:

Inc., Inc, Incorporated

Corp., Corp, Corporation

Co., Co, Company

Ltd., Ltd, Limited

Association, Assoc.

A Not-for-Profit may use any of the suffixes listed above for a Corporation, or it may use one of the following suffixes traditionally used by Non-Profit Organizations:

Club

Names with Bank or Trust

You cannot use the words "Bank" or "Trust" in the name of your company without prior written approval of the Delaware State Banking Commissioner.

Names with University or College

You cannot use the words "University" or "College" without the prior written approval of the Delaware State Education Commissioner.

Most other states in US have similar laws.

Similiar Names

If you are interested in registering a name that may be similar to the name of a company that already exists in Delaware (or your home state) you may make the name unique by adding a distinguishing word.

In Delaware the distinguishing word may be added to the beginning or the end of the name.

Changing the suffix will not make a name available if it is already taken. If there is already a company registered as "One IBC Corp." you will not be able to register the company as "One IBC Inc."

Prohibited

Your corporation's name cannot contain any words that may, in the judgment of the Delaware Secretary of State, be degrading, vulgar or unacceptable. The Secretary of State has full veto power over any name deemed unacceptable.
