Registering a DBA in Arizona
Any company or individual who wishes to do business in Arizona under a name other than its registered company name need to register a so-called "trade name" (an equivalent of DBA or "doing business as").
Before applying for a trade name a company must make sure that the name is available. This process is similar to the first step in formation of a new company. In Arizona, applications to register a trade name are filed with the Arizona Secretary of State (not with the Arizona Corporation Commission), however the trade name you plan to register must be distinguishable from other names already on file with the Secretary of State and the Corporation Commission. We assist our clients with the clearnace of trade name as part of our service.
The effective term for trade name registrations is five years. Trade names may be renewed by submitting an application for renewal, beginning six months before its expiration date.
We can help you research the trade name of your choice, and prepare and file all the necessary trade name registration paperwork with Arizona Secretary of State - all you need to do is complete our simple application below.
