New Hampshire Distinguishability of Names

Effective January 1, 2019, the business entity laws in New Jersey have been revised by adding criteria for determining distinguishability of names.  The added provisions describe elements that do not constitute distinguishing factors such as plural forms of the same word, phonetic spelling of the same word and abbreviations in place of complete spelling of names, among other factors.

Customers may need to consider the additional factors relating to distinguishability of names when attempting to place a (new) name on the Secretary of State’s record.

Incorporation/Formation/Qualification/Registration/Amendment and any other filings involving registration of a (new) entity name on the Secretary of State’s records will be impacted.
