If you desire to conduct business under another legal name, other than your personal name, for sole proprietors, or business name, for Corporations and LLC’s, you will need to register a DBA with the appropriate agency. In order to publicly register a business name with either the state or local jurisdiction a Certificate of Assumed name or Trade name must be filed. A DBA name is also called an assumed name, trade name, or fictitious business name.
DBAs enable sole proprietors to conduct business under a name other than their own personal name and enable corporations or LLCs to do business under a name other than that which is used on the company’s articles of formation.
