Name of the Entity

Address of the Principal Office

Name of the Registered Agent and the Address of the Registered Office

Organizer’s Signature

Managers and/or Members (optional)

Timeframe (optional)

Business Objective (optional)

Name of the Entity

A unique and clever company name is crucial, but it is not as necessary as a legally valid name.

When selecting a name for your company, you must ensure that the name:

satisfies Utah’s naming standards

is not currently in use by another Utah firm

Stick to the Utah Naming Guidelines:

Your business name must contain the words “limited liability company” or “limited company” or one of its acronyms (L.L.C., LLC, L.C., or LC). “Limited” may be shortened to “Ltd.,” while “business” can be shortened to “Co.”

The following words or abbreviations are not permitted in your name: association, corporation, incorporated, limited partnership, or L.P.

Your LLC’s name cannot include terms that might be confused with a federal government entity (FBI, Treasury, State Department, etc.).

Your name cannot imply that the LLC is a governmental agency or one of its political subdivisions.

Your name cannot indicate that the LLC was formed for a purpose other than that stated in its certificate of formation.

Certain prohibited terms in your name must be approved by certain authorities.

College, Institute, University, and Institution: Utah Division of Consumer Protection

Olympic, Olympiad, Citius Altius Fortius are all terms used by the United States Olympic Committee.

Bank, Banker, Banking, Banc, Banque, Banco, Bancorp, Bancorporation, Bankcard, Bancard, Savings Association, Building Association, Savings and Loan Assoc., Savings Bank, Industrial Loan Corp., ILC, Thrift, Credit Union, Trust, Trustee, Trust Company, ESCROW, escrow

Your name must be distinct from any other current company in the state. This covers reserved names in Utah.

Examine Name Availability:

Is your name legally accessible in Utah? Check the Utah Division of Corporations and Commercial Code website to see if the name you desire isn’t already taken.

Obtain a Domain Name:

We suggest that you check to see whether your company’s name is accessible as a web domain. Even if you don’t intend to create a company website right away, you may wish to purchase the URL to prevent others from doing so.

Address of the Principal Office

Give the address of your LLC’s main office.

Registered Office and Registered Agent

A registered agent receives and transmits legal paperwork on behalf of your LLC. When you form your Utah LLC, you must provide your registered agent and registered office address.

Your registered agent may be anybody over the age of 18 who resides in Utah. During normal business hours, your registered agent must always be present at the registered office. Your registered office address cannot be only a P.O. box.

Organizer’s Signature

The Certificate of Organization must be signed by the LLC’s organiser.

Members’ and/or Managers’ names and addresses

You may enter the names and addresses of your LLC’s members or management here.

You may mention whether the LLC’s term will be permanent or whether the firm has a planned dissolution date.


In Utah, a limited liability corporation may be formed for any lawful or non-prohibited business.

Remember that a business goal including licencing, tax-exemption, or tax-deductible status needs explicit wording from the IRS or a professional licence.

Step 3: Submit the Organizational Certificate.

To register an LLC, you must submit the Certificate of Organization to the Utah Division of Corporations and Commercial Code.

Steps to Take After Forming Your Utah LLC

After you’ve submitted your Certificate of Organization, you should do the following:

Make a Business Agreement

Obtain an EIN

Establish a Business Bank Account

Purchase Licenses and Permits

Make a Business Agreement

A Utah LLC operating agreement is a legal document that details your LLC’s ownership structure and member functions.

Although an Operating Agreement is not necessary in Utah to incorporate an LLC, it is a good idea to have one. You may begin working on your operating agreement before, during, or after filing your Certificate of Organization.

Your operating agreement will be held in the private business records of your LLC; you will not submit it with the state.

Obtain an EIN

An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is your LLC’s equivalent of a social security number. If you want to recruit staff or create company bank accounts, you’ll need an EIN.

You may get your EIN for free by using the IRS website, fax, or mail. Read our What is an EIN article to discover more about EINs and how they might benefit your LLC.

Establish a Business Bank Account

It is critical to use specific business banking and credit accounts to safeguard your company’s corporate veil. When you combine your personal and company accounts, your personal assets (house, vehicle, and other possessions) are at danger if your LLC is sued.

Purchase Licenses and Permits

When forming an LLC, you should consider if your company requires any licences or permissions to operate legally. There are a few commercial operations that need licences or permissions on the federal level.

Learn how to secure the licences and permissions required for your company, or hire an expert to handle it for you:

Federal: For federal business licences and permits, see the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

State: Visit Utah’s Business website to apply for or learn more about licences, permits, and registration.

Local: Inquire with your county clerk regarding local licences and permissions.
