- Corporations and LLC’s can carry out business transactions using Fictitious Business Names – very helpful for businesses that offer new services and/or products.
- There is no set limit on the number of Fictitious Business Names a business can have.
Some counties or states may require that you publish your Fictitious Business Name(s) in the appropriate publication and re-file publication with the appropriate county or state agency. This helps to inform consumers of services associated with your main company, if it is a corporation or LLC.
FICTITIOUS BUSINESS NAME DO’S AND DON’TS
Make sure that the desired Fictitious Business name does not deceive or mislead the public about the kind of business or services provided by the DBA. For businesses that are not registered as a corporation or an LLC do not include any variation of corporation or limited liability company in the Fictitious Business Names. Sole Proprietorships and General Partnerships do not have to be incorporated, but the same rule applies to them too; SP’s and GP’s cannot have any variation of corporation or limited liability company in their Fictitious Business Name.
