A DBA is simply a filing of the business name and the real name of the business owner or Corporation.
"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.
Example: Tony Soprano starts a business with the business name "Rob 'em and Cheat 'em". Obviously, he does not want his own name to be associated with the business name , so a DBA company name registration is required, unless he uses "Tony Soprano" as his company name or even Tony Soprano, the Robber" as his business name because in the latter case his real name is incorporated in the business name.
The same applies 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 business name.
