Doing Business As
When a sole proprietor operates a company using any name except his or her own given name, then the DBA or ficticious business name registration establishes the legal ownership to satisfy banks, local authorities, customers, etc.
Even established corporations benefit from filing DBA’s if they want to change their business name or operate under a different name. For example, MTS Inc. has a registered DBA under the name Tower Records.
