Instructions for completing a Statement of Reservation of Name

Use these instructions when completing a Statement of Reservation of Name pursuant to §7-90-602 and part 3 of Article 90 of Title 7 of the Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.).  A reserved name is held for the person’s exclusive use for a one-hundred-twenty-day period, which reservation may be renewed successively for one-hundred-twenty-day periods.  Provide only information required or permitted to be included in the document by Colorado law.  Information included in the document must be typewritten, in English and must state the name(s) and address(es) of at least one individual causing the document to be delivered for filing.  The required form/coversheet must be used when filing the document.  For legal authority, refer to §7-90-301 and §7-90-302, C.R.S.  You may include additional information in an attachment to the form/coversheet.  Any attachment becomes part of the document.  If there is a conflict between information in the attachment and the form/coversheet, the information in the form/coversheet controls.  Information provided in a case-sensitive format will be retrieved and displayed in the same format.  Visit our Web site at and click on “Business Center” for a copy of a document after filing, Certificates of Good Standing, other electronic services, and other information.  For answers to general filing questions consult the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), also on our Web site.



Statement Regarding Use of Name.  A statement is required that the person stated as the applicant is applying to reserve, for a 120 day period, the name stated for use as an entity name.  Trademarks cannot be reserved.

Name of Applicant.  Provide the name of the person wishing to reserve the name.  If the reservation is on behalf of a business organization, indicate the name of the business organization, not the name of the individual(s).  The name of the applicant will be verified when the name is used as an entity name or as a trade name.

Applicant Mailing Address.  List the complete mailing address of the applicant, including zip code.

Name to be Reserved.  State the name to be reserved.

Restricted Words.  Inclusion of any of these terms: “bank” or “trust” or any derivative thereof, “credit union”, “savings and loan”, “insurance”, “casualty”, “mutual”, or “surety” may be prohibited or restricted by Colorado law, and may be regulated by other state agencies (for example, use of the term “bank” requires Division of Banking approval).  Mark only one box.  If more than one term appears in the name, choose the term that best describes the organizational structure of the entity.

Notice.  Causing this document to be delivered to the secretary of state for filing shall constitute the affirmation or acknowledgment of each individual causing such delivery, under penalties of perjury, that the document is the individual's act and deed, or that the individual in good faith believes the document is the act and deed of the person on whose behalf the individual is causing the document to be delivered for filing, taken in conformity with the requirements of part 3 of article 90 of title 7, C.R.S., the constituent documents, and the organic statutes, and that the individual in good faith believes the facts stated in the document are true and the document complies with the requirements of that Part, the constituent documents, and the organic statutes.

This perjury notice applies to each individual who causes this document to be delivered to the secretary of state, whether or not such individual is named in the document as one who has caused it to be delivered.

Filing Information.  State the name(s) and address(es) of the individual(s) causing this document to be delivered for filing.  This information is required for the Colorado Secretary of State to deliver notice if the filing of the document is refused (§7-90-301, C.R.S.).  The individual(s) listed will be held responsible for complying with the above notice.   The document need not state the true name and address of more than one individual.  However, if you wish to state the name and address of any additional individuals causing the document to be delivered for filing, mark this box ٱ and include an attachment stating the name and address of such individuals.
