step-1-dba-guideThe very first step is using the Business Entity Search tool through the Secretary of State to ensure your chosen brand name is available. Then, if applicable, use the TESS System through the U.S. Patent Office to see that there are no trademark conflicts.

After that, the next step is getting what's called the Certificate of Assumed Business Name. This form can be obtained from the Secretary of State’s website and as this form can be filed online, you can immediately get started.

Now would be the perfect time to make sure there’s a web domain available for your DBA.
