Form a Mississippi DBA



Mississippi does not require DBAs. LegalZoom offers customizable documents for corporations or LLCs—if you'd like to take your business in that direction, take a look!



MISSISSIPPI STATUTORY GUIDELINES

There are no statutory or administrative provisions for a corporation to conduct business in Mississippi under a DBA. What most people do is file for a Mississippi Corporation or LLC to gain the liability protection and tax advantages of being incorporated.

However, if a foreign corporation's name is not available due to a conflict, the foreign corporation may qualify if it files with its qualification documents, a copy of the resolution of its board of directors, certified by its secretary, electing an available DBA. The DBA may not contain the word "corporation," "incorporated," "limited," or an abbreviation thereof.
