Doing Business As (DBA), Fictitious Name Filing or Assumed Name
What is a DBA? A DBA is an abbreviation for "doing business as." In some states or counties it may be called a fictitious name or an assumed name.
Naming your business is the first step in the branding of your company. Your name should clearly let your clients know what type of business you are conducting.
Who should file for a DBA?
- If you are doing business under a different name other than your personal name you will have to submit a filing with the proper authorities.
- If you have registered your Corporation or LLC and you decide that you would like to do business using a different name or you would like to have multiple names you will have to file a DBA.
Some DBA's are filed at the state level and some are filed at the county level.
