Purpose of a Name Availability Check

Whether you’re researching the availability of a business name or checking the status of a business entity, you can find the information you need from the Delaware Division of Corporation’s website.

The Division of Corporations Business Entity Database provides information for general partnerships, corporations and LLCs registered in Delaware. The names of sole proprietorships are not centralized and are registered at the Prothonotary’s Office in the counties where the business transacts business.

There is no fee for searching the database.
