What Is a DBA?
What is a DBA, and why do I need one?
DBA stands for “doing business as” and is an official registration of your business name. In some states, this can be referred to as a “fictitious business name” or “assumed” name. DBA registration is important when you want to conduct business or accept money under a name other than your own, and can be used to create an alternate name for another business that has already been filed. It is also important when creating a business bank account, as most banks generally require it.
