7. Disadvantages of a DBA

One of the main disadvantages of operating a sole proprietorship or partnership with a DBA, as opposed to forming an LLC or corporation is that you do not have liability protection as a sole proprietorship or partnership. You will be personally liable for the debts of your business. Additionally, you will not have exclusive rights to your business name. In many states and counties, anyone can register any DBA.
