DOING BUSINESS AS - FUN

 

As a business owner, your company name is a valuable asset. It's important that your properly register your business name not only to secure and protect its value, but also to remain compliant with mandatory business name registration laws.

The public has the right to know the owner(s) of every business doing business in names other than the name of the owner(s). Public records state the owner(s) of every business and sometimes their contact information. Which records you need to register for depends upon your local and state commercial codes and other laws. Remember, the laws for registering a business in California are different than all the other 49 states. You must become informed of the laws pertaining to the state in which your business will reside!

Typically all states support the premise that the public has the right to know the owner(s) of every business. Nearly all sole-proprietor business owners register their business name as a "DBA" (doing business as) by filing a Fictitious Name Statement (form name may vary by state) with their County Government, that being the county in which the business will reside. The fees are generally reasonable, and while you are there many county governments have additional info on other new business requirements such as licenses. You may not be subject to filing a DBA with local or county government when you form a corporation or limited liability company typically done at a state level instead. Again, determine the correct procedure for your business location checking with local and state government. Your business attorney and/or CPA can assist you as well.

Be aware that mobile grooming businesses doing business in more than their "home" county may have to register in all other counties in which they travel to in order to do business. A DBA filing may not be necessary in these outside counties, but don't forget you may have to secure business licenses from them. Be sure to inquire about the regulations for your area and again, don't rely on the guidance of others outside of these jurisdictions who are not legal or accounting professionals unfamiliar with the laws specific to your business region.
