What is my legal company name?

Your legal company name refers to the entity name you gave your business upon incorporating. It is this name that is registered with the government and other legal authorities. You company’s legal name is sometimes different from your trade name or your ‘doing business as’ (DBA).

Assuming you are incorporated, you can find your legal business name through the following ways:

1. Review articles of incorporation
When you form your entity, the registrar will provide you with a registration certificate. The certificate should include your company’s legal name.

2. Review tax returns
Company tax documents will cite your company’s legal name.

3. Search business directories
You can find your legal company name online by searching the corporate registry within the state you are registered and/or headquartered in.
