What is DBA?

If the owners of a company want to change the business name instead of the original name, they must register the secondary name. For sole proprietorships or partnership business, the last name is the actual name of the owner or partners. The new name registered is called as the secondary name.

The secondary name does not replace the actual one but use as an additional, legal name for the business. This name is known by several terms such as trade name, fictitious business name and assumed name. The procedure for filing this name is often called DBA registration, or doing business as.
