Q.Must a Corporation file a fictitious business name (D.B.A.)?

A.A corporation that regularly conduct business using an assumed name, a DBA ( doing business as ), or a FBN ( fictitious business name ), or its corporate name without the corporate identifier (Corporation, Incorporated, Inc. or Corp.) must file a fictitious business name statement with the county clerk in the county where the corporation's principal office is registered or located. In some states, the corporation must also file its DBA or fictitious business name with the Secretary of State.

If the owners of a corporation begin using a DBA or fictitious business name without registering it, it may be considered fraud. Fortunately, filing for a DBA or fictitious business name is very easy and inexpensive.

DBA, fictitious business name, fbn, doing business as, corporation name.
