As many of our clients are aware, there are many ways to form a new business. For example, a tech start-up might be interested in an S-Corp for stock-related reasons and a small law firm might prefer the LLC to avoid personal liability. Attorneys Corporation Service, Inc. can help you form your client’s LLC or corporation.
No matter the size of the company or the industry it is in, a business owner is required to file a DBA, or Doing Business As, if the business owner is doing business under a name other than his or her legal name.
We advise our clients, including licensed attorneys and CPAs, to make sure a proposed name is available before starting a new business. Give us a call or contact us online and we will run a business name availability check for you and reserve up to three proposed business names with the appropriate Secretary of State or state department.
For several reasons, it is best to file your client’s DBA before he or she actually starts doing business under the business name. Some jurisdictions, such as California, require that a DBA is filed within a certain period of time of the name’s first use. This can be a tedious task, but it is necessary under the law. Let Attorneys Corporation Service, Inc. spare you the hassle.
Attorneys Corporation Service, Inc. can save you time and money when filing a DBA in California or any of the 50 states. Remember, the DBA filing process is not complete without publication of the name’s potential use. We will find the appropriate local newspaper to publish your client’s desired DBA, allowing you to focus on more pressing elements of your practice.
A DBA is a quick, easy, and economical way to operate a small business and can be the cheapest and simplest structure for formal business recognition. Attorneys Corporation Service can deal with the paperwork and headache that goes with filing your client’s DBA with the appropriate county or jurisdiction.
