Syed Ahmed asked:
>Does a comma precede an abbreviation of the company type? And does the
full spelling/abbreviation make a difference?
It may be a legal issue, actually (OB: IANAL).
Our company's full legal name is SMARTworks.com, Inc. It's not
SMARTworks.com Inc. or SMARTworks.com Incorporated or SMARTworks.com,
IME, the type of company is part of the company's legal name (Inc., Corp.,
LLC, whatever). Use whatever's correct.
