What this means

On the application, what's the difference between my contact address, DBA address and legal business address?


DBA (Doing Business As) Filing Service


Your Contact Address is where we should mail documents to you for the purposes of completing your DBA registration order. It could be a home address, for example, or wherever is most convenient.

Your DBA Address is a physical address of your business in the state in which you want the DBA registered. Most states and local jurisdictions require that you have this physical address in order to register a DBA there.

Your Legal Business Address is the physical address of the primary office of your business. For example, if your business is an LLC, this is the primary business address you indicated on your LLC formation filing. This could be the same as your DBA Address or different.
