While you choose a name for your Vermont corporation, it should be remembered that the name will need to be unique and will identify you as a separate entity transacting business in the state. The name of a corporation must end with the word “Incorporated,” “Corporation,” “Corp” or “Inc.”. When developing a name for a limited liability company it must end with “Limited Liability Company” or “LLC”.
Because the name of your company will be identifying your corporation or LLC as a unique business entity, the name will not be accepted if it is likely to mislead the general public or if it too closely resembles the name of another corporation or LLC formed in Vermont.
State guidelines require that you do not use any type of punctuation such as dashes, periods or commas in name selection. It may be to your advantage to try to name your corporation or LLC so that the name identifies with the goods or services you provide, but this is not required.
