If I plan to create an LLC do I need to file a DBA and a resale license first? Are all these steps required?
There are many components of operating an LLC . However, which aspects are required and which are optional often is the source of confusion for many business owners. One of the commonly asked questions submitted to MyLLC.com is whether a DBA (short for “Doing Business As”) is required as part of a businesses LLC filing.
MyLLC.com highly suggests contacting your legal adviser to garner a complete understanding of DBAs and how and when they are needed. However, we gladly offer the following information to help you understand the basics of DBAs with the understanding that its meant strictly for informational purposes only and in no way constitutes legal or tax advice.
Typically, DBAs are needed if you plan on using a name other than the name of the LLC filed with the state. This does not change the name of the LLC but rather it creates a secondary name that the LLC is permitted to do business under. When applying for a business license, each state requires different information. Once the LLC is filed you can contact your local county's business office to see if your business activity requires it. DBAs are also known as "fictitious names."
There are times when partners of an LLC utilize a DBA when joining business organizations such as networking groups, paying for conferences or business meetings or purchasing office supplies. It's simply a name that is linked to your LLC in order to keep all transactions relating to your business separate from personal finances.
Once you have obtained legal and tax advice from your respective counsel, contact MyLLC.com to assist you in filing for your DBA today!Page updated on 2015-09-30
