Selecting the California Corporation or LLC Name
Since the name you choose will be identifying your corporation or LLC as a unique entity, the company name will not be accepted if it is likely to mislead the public or if it too closely resembles the name of another business (corporation or LLC) formed in California.
During the naming process, do not use any type of punctuation such as dashes, periods or commas in name selection. It is advantageous to try to name your corporation or LLC so that it identifies with the goods or services you provide, but this is not required.

California maintains an individual income tax so employers are expected to withhold state income tax and unemployment tax. California maintains a sales and use tax with the rates being 7.25% plus any district taxes that may apply.
