Question How do I determine whether a corporate, limited partnership, or limited liability company name is available?

Answer The Department of State will make a determination of name availability in response to written requests addressed to the Albany office of the Department of State that are accompanied by a fee of $5 for each name searched for availability. Requests for name availability cannot be handled by phone. If you wish to reserve a name, you may do so by submitting the appropriate form and fee to the Department.
