Why else should I file a DBA?


DBA (Doing Business As) Filing Service


Aside from the importance of legal compliance, another important reason to register a DBA is financial purposes. Banks will generally only allow you to open an account under your one official legal name or a properly registered DBA. And in fact, in many states banks require a certified copy of the DBA.

Also, since DBA registration includes a public filing of records, other businesses then have official notice that your name is in use, which helps to protect your brand.
