DBA (Doing Business As)
Make a first and lasting impression with your "doing business as" name.
Use a different business name than your entity's official name or your personal name.
For sole proprietorships and general partnerships, many banks require a DBA.
Name new business lines and keep them separate to cut down on paperwork and expenses.
Your business name is how customers find and recognize you, so a unique DBA can have a positive impact. The registration process can also help you avoid legal problems by making sure you don't choose a name that's confusingly similar to another business in your area.Learn more about DBAs
Every state and county has different regulations about DBAs. We don't just send you a blank form. We'll do a preliminary name search (where required) and file your DBA statement with the appropriate office. If proof of publication is required, we'll publish your DBA at no extra cost.Find out more about DBAs in your state
