Do DBA filings expire?


DBA (Doing Business As) Filing Service


The state, county, and/or municipality where the DBA is filed determines the expiration date. Some are valid for several years, and some never expire. The appropriate agency will notify you at the address of record that you provide if it becomes necessary to refile before an expiration date. Additionally, we will provide with your final documentation the list of agencies that your registration was completed with, so that you can maintain a current address of record with them. This will ensure that any correspondence or notifications from them get to you.
