Every state has its own rules for forming an LLC (Limited Liability Company). Knowing Idaho’s rules will help streamline the filing process.
The name of your Idaho LLC must end with "Limited Liability Company," "Limited Company," "Ltd. Co.," "L.C.," "LC," "LLC" or "L.L.C." And, it can’t contain any word or phrase that indicates or implies that it is organized for a purpose that differs from the purpose(s) set out in the Articles of Organization. What’s more, your name cannot be the same as (or deceptively similar to) that of a domestic or a qualified foreign LLC or a reserved name. If you want to include the words "Engineer" or "Survey,” you’ll need approval by the state's engineering board.
