Delaware company formation process


1. Select a business name

Choose a memorable name. Make sure your name is something that consumers will remember. You need to suggest important qualities about your business and encourage people to use your products or services.


2. Follow your State’s laws on business names.

Most states require that the name be followed by an appropriate designator name, such as “Limited Liability Company,” or an abbreviation (such as “LLC,” “Ltd. Liability Co.,” etc.). certain words, such as Bank, Insurance, or Trust.

You can find out more by clicking on the link below:  Company names


3.  Check if the name is available

You cannot use a name if another business already uses it.


4. Reserve your business name

In most countries, you can keep your business name for a short time, usually 30 to 60 days, without protecting it yet. This will give you time to register.

You have to pay a fee to maintain the names. Fee is $ 220.- US dollars.


5. Your name can be a trademark if you want

A company name can also be classified as a trademark if it is used to distinguish goods or services. For example, if you sell a product under your company name that you represent on the packaging or on the product, your name is probably a trademark.

You are fundamentally entitled, whether or not your name has a trademark. However, filing a federal trademark provides an opportunity to file a lawsuit in federal court if someone uses your trademark illegally. So it is worth protecting the company name as soon as possible.


6. Select the management structure

LLC or C-Corporation will be the type of the company. Get to know the company types here:

  • Explanation of profit and loss distribution.
