A request to reserve a corporation name also can be dropped off in person at our Los Angeles regional office, 300 South Spring Street, Room 12513, Los Angeles, CA 90013. In addition to the $10 name reservation fee, each drop off request must include a separate, non-refundable special handling fee in the amount of $10.

Go to www.sos.ca.gov/business-programs/business-entities/processing-times for the current processing times at our Sacramento office. Only one reservation will be made per request form. You may list up to three names, in order of preference, and the first available name will be reserved for a period of 60 days. The remaining names will not be researched. A name reservation is made for a period of 60 days. The name reservation can be renewed to the same applicant or for the benefit of the same party, but not for consecutive periods. E-mail and/or online requests for name reservations cannot be accepted at this time. Please complete the Name Reservation Request Form on the following page. Note: The reservation of a proposed corporation, limited liability company or limited partnership name does not guarantee that the reserved name complies with all federal and state laws. At the time of filing the document containing the reserved name, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have complied with all federal and state laws, including specific name requirements. In some circumstances, the reserved name may require additional approval/consent pursuant to applicable law at the time of filing. Name styles for particular types of business entities and the need for consent/approval required by law are not considered at the time of the name reservation. Therefore, no financial commitment relating to the proposed name should be made based on the reservation, since the business entity record is not created/qualified/amended until the appropriate documents have been submitted to and filed by the Secretary of State.
