I'll soon have my first day with my new client and I'm a subcontractor. I don't expect to have an employee badge the first day so I guess I should sign in as any visitor at the front desk (unless other instructions will be given by the manager).

Should I write the name of my own Single-Person Limited Liability Company (subcontractor) or the name of the contractor that has a direct relationship with the client?

The client probably has no idea that my LLC even exists.

You should ask your contact at the main contractor company. Most probable is that you use their name since they have the contract with the customer, but this is not a given. Just ask, communication is key.

I've always signed in with the name of the contractor company that has a direct relationship with the client.

Do not make things confusing.

Unless you're a plumber/electrician/tradesman with some kind of required license under your company name, use the name of the contractor that has a direct relationship with the client.

A badge or an attendance sheet is not a tax form. Besides, if it's like in the US, the client company will most likely always invoice the intermediary contractor, not your company.
