Do I Need a DBA?
Example: If you are named John Doe and wanted to operate as “JD Enterprises”, you would need to file a DBA to
- use that name legally.
- open a company bank account to accept payments made to “JD Enterprises” and
- Establish a professional image in that name.
If your business is already set up as a corporation or an LLC, and you want to do business under a different name than your existing corporate or LLC name, you will need to file a DBA. Example: Acacia Business Solutions is a dba of Acacia corporate Management, LLC.
