Florida LLC Name
Chapter 608.406 of the Florida Statutes details what a Florida Limited Liability Company name must contain.
- A Florida LLC name must contain "Limited Liability Company," "L.L.C.," or "LLC" as the last words in the name. Knowingly omitting the "Limited Liability Company" or an abbreviation can result in penalties and liability for any damage or indebtedness caused by the omission.
- A Florida LLC name may not use any language that implies or states that the Limited Liability Company is organized for any purpose other than what is stated in the Florida Articles of Organization or is permitted by the Florida Department of State.
- A Florida LLC name may not use any misleading language that implies that the Limited Liability Company is associated with any state or federal government agency or any other entity chartered under United States laws.
- A Florida LLC name must be distinguishable on the records of the Division of Corporations of the Department of State, except for fictitious name registrations filed pursuant to statute 865.09 and general partnership registrations filed pursuant to statute 620.8105. Provided that consent is filed with the Division of Corporations at the time of registration, a limited liability company may register under a name that is not otherwise distinguishable on the records of the Division of Corporations with written consent of the owner entity.
