Registering a DBA in Colorado
Any company or individual that wishes to do business in Colorado under a name other than its registered company name must register a so-called "trade name" (an equivalent of DBA or "doing business as"). All trade names are registered by filing Statement of Trade Name with the Colorado Secretary of State.
Before applying for a trade name a company must make sure that the name is available by searching Colorado Secretary of State records. This process is similar to the first step in formation of a new company.

A trade name for a other entities is effective as long as the entity remains in Good Standing.
