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
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.
