Whenever there is a change in the general partners who are members of a partnership transacting business in North Dakota under a fictitious name, an amended certificate must be filed. When the fictitious name itself changes, the certificate on file must be cancelled and a new Fictitious Name Certificate must be filed. Every limited partnership, limited liability partnership, and limited liability limited partnership transacting business in North Dakota under a name other than the legal name as registered with the Secretary of State, must file a Fictitious Name Certificate with the Secretary of State. The following numbers correspond to the numbered sections on page 1 of this form: 1. Checks must be payable to "Secretary of State" and must be for U.S. negotiable funds. Payment may also be made by credit card using Visa, MasterCard, or Discover. The fictitious name certificate filing fee is $25 if there are two partners. If there are more than two partners, an additional fee of $3 per additional partner must be paid. However, the fee shall not exceed a total fee of $250. The fictitious name certificate filing fee is $25 when the fictitious name is used by a limited partnership, a limited liability partnership, or a limited liability limited partnership. The fee for an amended fictitious name certificate is $25. 2. 3. Check whether this certificate is a new registration with the Secretary of State, or a certificate amending a previous registration. A new registration has a duration of five years. The duration of an amended registration is five years from the date of the original registration. The fictitious name: (a) (b) May not contain the word "corporation", "company", "incorporated", "limited liability company", or "limited", or an abbreviation of one of such words. This does not preclude the word "limited" from being used in conjunction with the word "partnership". Must include the words: "Limited partnership" or the abbreviation "L.P." or "LP" if fictitious name is filed to be used by a limited partnership; "Limited liability partnership" or either of the abbreviations "L.L.P." or "LLP" if fictitious name is used by a limited liability partnership; or "Limited liability limited partnership", or the abbreviation "L.L.L.P." or "LLLP" if fictitious name is used by a limited liability limited partnership. (c) A foreign professional limited liability partnership may use a name required or authorized in the state of origin. However, the name may not be the same as, or deceptively similar to, any corporate name, limited liability company name, trade name, limited partnership name, limited liability partnership name, limited liability limited partnership name, or partnership fictitious name certificate, or a name in any other manner reserved with the secretary of state. See North Dakota Century Code, Section 45-11-01. If the fictitious name is the same as, or similar to a name registered, the partnership must obtain consent to use of name from the previously registered entity. An original consent to use of name signed by a principal of the previously registered name must be filed with the fictitious name certificate and the fee of $10. The name on an amended fictitious name certificate must be identical to that as originally filed. The name does not need to be researched for availability since the right to the name was secured with the original registration. 4. 5. 6. Distinguish whether the partnership using the fictitious name is a general partnership, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, or limited liability limited partnership. If the fictitious name is being used by a limited partnership, limited liability partnership, or limited liability limited partnership, provide the correct name as registered with the North Dakota Secretary of State. To properly maintain partnership records, provide the partnership's Federal ID number.
