The search tool allows users to make custom searches using one of four possible parameters (Business Name, Control Number, Registered Agent Name, or Officer Name). Although not recommended by the Georgia Secretary of State, the business search can be used to check for the availability of entity names for individuals planning on applying for an LLC in the near future.
