When you select a name for your corporation filed under South Carolina law, you may want to remember that the name you choose should be unique and will identify you as a separate entity transacting business in the state. The name of your corporation must end with “Incorporated,” “Corporation,” “Corp” or “Inc.”. When picking a name for a limited liability company it must end with “Limited Liability Company” or “LLC”.
Because the name will be identifying your corporation or LLC as a unique entity, the name will not be accepted by the state if it is likely to confuse the public or if it too closely resembles the name of another corporation or LLC formed in South Carolina.
Do not use any type of punctuation in the name selection such as dashes, periods or commas. It may be helpful to name your corporation or LLC so that it identifies with the services or goods which you provide, but this is not a requirement.
