Question by Yazz: LLC forming question…?
okay let’s say you open an LLC…and give your company the name “AAA Company”…do you have to display the “LLC” part in the company name? or can it be left out?
Also…if you have the AAA a special way (design) and would like to have that be a trademark for your company, so let’s say you decide to do another form of business with the same exact name so now instead of AAA Real Estate its AAA Photography…can you register/copyright that AAA design and do that? or what would be the best way?

Forming business entities are done through your state and not on a federal level. So most questions about starting a business are not standard because states create their own rules. That being said most state require that you put LLC or something similar in the name. You must also use LLC when displaying that name. Most states also allow you to file d.b.a.’s (doing business as). This allows you to use a name without the LLC.
