Title 11C : Mututal Benefit Enterprises


(Cite as: 11C V.S.A. § 112)
  • § 112. Reservation of name

    (a) A person may reserve the exclusive use of the name of a mutual benefit enterprise, including a fictitious name for a foreign enterprise whose name is not available under section 111 of this title, by delivering an application to the Secretary of State for filing. The application shall set forth the name and address of the applicant and the name proposed to be reserved. If the Secretary of State finds that the name applied for is available under section 111 of this title, the Secretary of State shall reserve the name for the applicant’s exclusive use for a nonrenewable period of 120 days.

    (b) A person who has reserved a name for a mutual benefit enterprise may transfer the reservation to another person by delivering to the Secretary of State a signed notice of the transfer which states the name, street address, and, if different, the mailing address of the transferee. If the person is an organizer of the enterprise and the name of the enterprise is the same as the reserved name, the delivery of articles of organization for filing by the Secretary of State is a transfer by the person to the enterprise.
