DO I NEED A FICTITIOUS BUSINESS NAME STATEMENT?

Most businesses under a fictitious name are required to complete a fictitious business name statement, publish the statement in a newspaper of general circulation, and  record this information where the business is located. Corporations are  exempt. If you are "doing business as" (d/b/a or dba),  you need to comply with fictitious business name rules.

"DBA" or Fictitious Business Name (FBN).  What is it?

"DBA" means   "Doing Business As..."    A person or a company is using a business name other than their personal or corporation name. 

Dba Example:  Tony Soprano starts a business called "Rob 'em and Cheat 'em".  Obviously, he does not want his name to be associated with the  business name , so a DBA registration is required, unless he uses "Tony Soprano" or even Tony Soprano, the Robber" as his business name because in the latter case his real name is incorporated in the business name. 

This dba principle applies, as well,  when a Corporation, an LLC, a General Partnership, etc. wants  to do business in another name.   Example, your corporation name is "Rob 'em and Cheat 'em"  and you want to do business as "Rob 'em".  You need to obtain a DBA for that name.

Our dba service  currently help clients who reside or do business within Los Angeles, and Orange Counties.
