It should be remembered when choosing a name for your corporation to be filed under south Dakota law that the name will need to be unique and will identify you as a separate entity transacting business in the state. The name you choose for your corporation must end with “Incorporated,” “Corporation,” “Corp” or “Inc.”. When developing a name for a limited liability company it must end with “Limited Liability Company” or “LLC”.
It is important to note that the name pf your business will be identifying your corporation or LLC as a unique entity. The name will not likely be accepted by the state if it could mislead the public or if it too closely resembles the name of another corporation or LLC formed in South Dakota.
Due to South Dakota requirements, you may not use any type of punctuation marks such as dashes, question marks, exclamations, periods, brackets or commas in name selection. It may be desirable to try to name your corporation or LLC so that it identifies with the goods or services you provide, but this is not required.
