Your business name must not be the same as, or deceptively similar to, any other names on file with the Texas Secretary of State. To determine if your desired name is already registered in the TX SOS database, you may call the TX SOS at (512) 463-5555. Please note that an approval by the Secretary of State of the desired business name does not mean that your use of the name will not infringe on another's intellectual property rights or result in a future lawsuit. When doing your due diligence, you should not limit your research to Texas records or any one database. Rather you should conduct a comprehensive search including, but not limited to state, federal and international trademarks along with common law rights. The Texas Secretary of State will search only their database and reject a name that is an exact match or similar to existing business name. WE DO NOT PROVIDE OPINIONS ON WHETHER A NAME IS AVAILABLE OR WHETHER YOU WILL POTENTIALLY INFRINGE ON ANOTHER’S RIGHTS.

Yes, an owner is typically the Registered Agent. The Registered Agent requirements are: (1) the Registered Agent must consent to the appointment; (2) the Registered Agent must be located in Texas; and (3) the Registered Agent's address must be a physical address (not a PO Box or mail service) in Texas where the Registered Agent can be located. If you can't meet all of these requirements (or don't want to be bothered with Registered Agent duties), we can hire a Registered Agent for you for $120/year.
