IncSmart Nevada (Small Business and Startups) - DBA - doing business as, is a registration showing that an individual, company or organization is conducting business under a different name. DBA's are also called fictitious names, assumed names and trade as names. It is required by Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS 602.010) that every person doing business in the state of Nevada under an assumed or fictitious name that is different from the legal name of each person who owns an interest in the business must file with the County Clerk of each county in which the business is being conducted a certificate containing the information required by the above Nevada Revised Statute.
When your business is registered under one name and you want to conduct business under a different name, you must file a DBA. DBA's can be used in contracts and opening bank accounts. DBAs are not the legal name of the legal person who owns the business, but is responsible and liable. There are many reasons when a DBA is used. 1. Name not available when registering with the state. 2. Name to be registered by a business partner 3. Products within a company 4. Franchisee agreements for national brand names Filing DBAs are simple. Establish your business or product to protect your name and services. Most DBAs only need to renew every 4 to 5 years depending on the state. There are no yearly fees. When you want to stop using the DBA, just don't renew it.
