Entity Name Availability Check – Check if Your Business Name is Available for Free

An entity name availability check allows you to determine if your business name is available. The process begins by submitting your desired business name. LegalZoom will perform a business name search to determine availability. We will contact you with the results shortly after the business name check is complete and your information will be kept strictly confidential. Once you select a business name and verify business name availability, LegalZoom can help you reserve a business name online. This is an important step in the process of starting a business because until a business name is officially approved and filed with the state through business formation, the name can still be secured by another party. In addition to conducting an entity name check, LegalZoom can also help you set up your business structure. Get started with a business name lookup today through LegalZoom.
