I am running a DBA in California for years engaged in importing customized products and ship to international. Now I am thinking to change my business to online using the same Fictitious name which is DBA, can I change this DBA to LLC or what is the best way (business structure) to do the online business with limited liability? Thanks.
Dear Black Cougar,
You could probably register an LLC in California with the same name as your DBA is (plus “LLC” in the end), since in California DBA is filed on county level, and LLC is filed on state level.
If your business had any assets then you need to transfer those assets to your LLC. Also, you might want to let your DBA expire, so don’t renew it.
(a) You made a typo in the card number, CCV code, expiration date, name or address;
(b) Your card balance is too low;
(c) Issuing bank has declined this transaction for some other reason related to your account.
