Find out if your business name is available before filling for an LLC?

It is important to find out if your business name is available before filing for an LLC because the name you choose for your business must be unique and not already taken by another business. If the chosen name is already in use, it can lead to legal issues and potentially affect the credibility and success of your business. Checking the availability of your business name can save you time and money in the long run. It can prevent you from wasting money on an LLC application that will be denied, if the name is not available. You may spend money purchasing a website domain and email for your business and you could also lose money in that aspect, if the name you chose is not available.


What steps should I take in Michigan to find out if my business name is available?

To check if your business name is available in Michigan, you can conduct a search on the Michigan Secretary of State's website. You can do this by visiting the business entity search page and entering your desired business name. The website will display a list of businesses with similar names, so you can see if your name is already taken. If your business name is available, you can proceed with registering it with the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
