Florida incorporation law requires a corporate business name to contain the word “corporation,” “company,” “incorporated,” or a proper abbreviation. A corporate designator is required by the State of Florida to indicate the business is a corporation as opposed to another type of business entity. Additionally, the name of a Florida corporation may not contain language that attempts to link an affiliation with a state or federal government agency, or a banking institution. A corporation established in Florida must have a name that is different from other entities that are registered with the Florida Department of State. Our Attorneys can walk you through this process.
