Assumed Name Certificate Filing Service
An assumed name, sometimes called a fictitious name, or DBA “doing business as” is a document that entities must file to operate under a different name.
If you are forming a sole proprietorship you may need to register as a DBA to use a business name other than your individual name.
Businesses that operate under another name, register DBAs so that they can legally conduct business under the assumed name. Blumberg Corporate Services can prepare and file all required documents to start your DBA. Our Service fee is only $130 plus any state or county disbursements, correspondence and courier fees.
Here are some common reasons why you may need a DBA:
A DBA allows you as a sole proprietor to use a business name other than your personal name.
Allows a single legal entity such as a corporation or LLC to operate multiple businesses without creating a new legal entity for each company.
DBA filings differ across different jurisdictions and may be needed in the state, county, and, in some cases, the city where you’re planning to use the name. Some states also require that you publish a legal notice in the local newspaper announcing your new DBA name, and submit an affidavit to show that you have fulfilled the publication requirement. At Blumberg, we know the requirements and will make sure you’re compliant where ever you want to do business.
