When selecting the name for your Missouri business, you should remember that the name should be unique and will identify you as a separate entity transacting business in the state. The name of a corporation must end with “Incorporated,” “Corporation,” “Corp” or “Inc.”. When developing a name for a limited liability company remember that it must end with “Limited Liability Company” or “LLC”.
Please note that the name you choose will be identifying your corporation or LLC as a unique entity within the state to Missouri consumers, the name will not be accepted if it is likely to mislead the public or be confused with another business entity or if it too closely resembles the name of another corporation or LLC formed in Missouri.
Based on Missouri regulations, you may not use any type of punctuation when choosing the name such as dashes, periods or commas. It is usually advantageous to try to name your corporation or LLC so that it identifies with the goods or services you will provide, but this is not required.
