    What is a “Doing Business As”(DBA)?

    If you are looking to start a sole proprietorship, you have the choice of choosing a business name or going by a DBA. A DBA keeps the public informed as to who the owner of a corporation is. This limits any liabilities that may come from a business trying to operate with a different name. For specific cases, you won’t need a DBA. Let’s say that your name is Jim and you want to own your own flower shop. You will not need to apply for a DBA if the name of your shop is “Jim’s Flowers”. If your business has nothing to do with your name, for example, “We Sell Flowers” then you would need to fill out a DBA.

    Do I Need a DBA Name?

    You require a “Doing Business As” name for:

    Sole Proprietors or Partnerships – If you want to start a business under something other than your actual name, you’ll need to register a “Doing Business As” so that it will be possible for you to do business with another name.

    Existing Corporations or LLCs – If your business is already set up and you want to do business under a name other than your existing corporation or LLC name, you will need to register.

    When To File A “Doing Business As”

    • You want to use a business name and not your personal name.
    • Your bank requires a DBA to open a business bank account.
    • A prospective client requires a DBA to award you a job.
    • Your company is entering a new business area not reflected by your current name.
    • Your company operates another business or website.
