Registering your business is the first step in making it successful. This article will give you the information you need to register your company, including what type of registration may be necessary and how to get started. Here are some tips on naming your company and finding an agent so that everything goes smoothly when it's time to submit all of your paperwork.

Submit Documents and Fees

Once you have gathered all the required information, it's time to submit your documents and fees. The specific agencies you need to contact will vary depending on your location. Still, most likely, you will need to register with the federal government, your state government, and possibly your local government. Check the agency websites for specific instructions on what is required and how to pay the fees.

It is essential to ask yourself the following question:

What do I need to provide to register a limited company?

What is the cost of registration?

How long will it take to complete the process?

You can be better prepared to begin the registration process by answering these questions. Keep in mind that some agencies may require more information than others, so read all of the instructions carefully. And finally, don't forget to submit your documents and fees. The sooner you get started, the sooner your business can be up and running.

Find a Registered Agent

A registered agent is a third party authorized to receive legal documents on behalf of your company. They will forward any important notices or filings to you, so choosing someone reliable is essential.

Consider the following when choosing an agent:

Availability—is the registered agent available 24 hours a day, seven days a week?

Location—will they be able to deliver documents and notices effectively if you're located out of state or out of town?

Communication style—do you feel comfortable working with this individual if something goes wrong with your business registration process?

Credentials/qualifications - can they explain their qualifications for being an agent before you sign any contracts with them?

Once you have chosen a company, make sure to ask for references from other clients. If possible, speak with people who work closely within the industry that relates most to your business type. This way, it will help ensure compatibility between your needs and theirs.

You can also search for registered agents in your area on the New Mexico Secretary of State's website.

Make sure to read through any contracts you sign with an agent before signing them, and always keep copies of all documents given to you by that company.

Identify Your Legal Company Name

One essential step is to select and register a business name. The legal company name you choose must follow specific guidelines:

It cannot be the same as another registered business in your state

Must contain language such as "corporation" or "incorporated". If it does not, add this immediately after its name

Doing Business As" is an acceptable phrase for sole proprietorships but should not be used by corporations or limited liability companies; instead, incorporate these entities under their full and proper names.


Registering your business can be a daunting task, but it can be a smooth process with the proper guidance. By following these tips, you will be on your way to starting your own business. Contact your local Small Business Administration office or check out their website for more information and assistance.
