Fictitious Business Name Registrations

Any business entity that is not doing business by the name registered with the Secretary of State must obtain a fictitious business name statement. Likewise, a person operating a sole proprietorship who holds him/herself out to the public as doing business as anything other than the legal name of the sole proprietor, needs a fictitious business name. A fictitious business name filing, also  known as Doing Business As or “DBA,” is a registration obtained at the county level that lets the public know what name your business is “doing business as.”  A business entity may operate multiple businesses under the same corporate structure, thereby requiring the registration for each separately named entity.
