Registering a DBA in Kansas
Kansas does not have statutes requiring or permitting the registration or filing of DBAs or fictitious names, therefore Kansas Secretary of State office does not list or register DBAs.
So how can you protect your business name in Kansas? Short of registering your company as LLC, corporation or another legal entity separate from it's owners, the best advise given by Kansas Secretary of State website is to consult with your attorney about protecting your business name.
Sole proprietorships and partnerships: sole proprietorships do not file with the Secretary of State. General partnerships may choose to file a statement of authority or other statements with the Secretary of State, but they are not required filings and a statement of authority does not create the partnership. If an out-of-state business entity is "doing business" in Kansas, it must file a foreign application.
