New Hampshire Overview: New Hampshire is one of our lower-volume states as far as business filings are concerned but we’ve formed many companies for our clients over the years so we do have experience with them.
Things to Watch for: Business name rules in New Hampshire are fairly complex (for example, the “business purpose” may affect the availability of a name). The Secretary of State is usually overworked and understaffed so you may wait on hold for a while if you need to cal them to clear or verify a name.
Your company name must include the correct corporate identifier:
Corporations: “Corporation”, “Incorporated” or an abbreviation.
For Corporations you must file “Articles of Incorporation”.
In New Hampshire, you can authorize an unlimited number of shares of No Par Value stock.
Corporations: Annual Report due by March 15th (assuming a 12/31 Fiscal Year)
Your company name must include the correct LLC identifier:
LLC’s: “Limited Liability Company” or an abbreviation.
Name Restrictions: synonmys within the same town are not allowed. For example: New Hampshire Green Builders LLC will be considered the same as New Hampshire Green Renovations LLC within the same town.
For LLC’s you must file “Articles of Organization”.
LLC’s: Annual Report due by March 15th (assuming a 12/31 Fiscal Year)
