Legislative Changes for LLC Names
Sections 608.406 and 608.407, Florida Statutes, were amended during the 2007 legislative session. Effective July 1, 2007, the name of a new limited liability company and the new name of an existing limited liability company must be distinguishable from the names of all other filings filed with the Division of Corporations, except for fictitious name registrations and general partnership registrations. The name must also contain the words "limited liability company," the abbreviation "L.L.C.," or the designation "LLC" as the last words of the name. "Limited Company," the abbreviation "L.C.," and the designation "LC," are no longer acceptable suffixes.
