    Greetings,
    I'm curious to know if the word "Incorporated" or "Inc" is mandatory with my S Corporation's name (ie., Julia's Herbal, Inc). I prefer to not to have my company name with this reference. However, I do not want to jeopardize &/or nullify the entity (ie., S-Corp) of my company. Thanks!

    PS: I live in the USA.

    I checked on both the IRS and SBA websites, and could find nothing that mandates using the word "Incorporated" in the business name. As far as I can tell, your company's status as an "S" corporation is for tax purposes, and has nothing to do with it's name. If anyone can find anything that contradicts this, please let scctech know.

    I think this is a by state law but not sure. All I know is if you look up names at the Arizona Corporation Commission it always shows Inc. or LLC next to the name. And it is REQUIRED in the Articles of Corporation to put Inc. at the end of the name or Incorporation.
