Each state has different requirements for forming a limited liability company (LLC). Whether you are starting a business or incorporating a business already in existence, you'll want to understand the state requirements for LLC formation.
At BizFilings, we clearly outline our fees and the Texas state fees. When you view our pricing to form an LLC you plainly see:
The name of the LLC must end with "Limited Liability Company," "Limited Company," "Ltd. Co.," "LC," "LLC" or "L.L.C." Symbols cannot be used in the name. Names submitted with superscript letters or numbers or subscript letters or numbers will not appear in that format in the official company name. (For example, H 2 0 would appear as H20.) The name may not contain the word "Lottery." The name must not imply a purpose other than that stated in the Certificate of Formation. It may not be the same as or deceptively similar to the name of any domestic or foreign LLC or reserved or registered name. However, a name already in use may be used if the LLC gets written consent from the existing name holder. Use of words tied to education (such as but not limited to "College," "School" and "Seminary" cannot be used without approval from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Use of words such as "Bank," "Trust" and those implying ties to Veterans ("Veterans," "War," etc.) also require approvals prior to use.
