Registering a DBA in Maine

Maine has separate procedures for filing DBA, depending on the type of company filing it:

  1. DBA filed by an individual (sole proprietorship) or general partnership is called "trade name", and it is registered by filing a DBA with the municipal clerk where your business is located (and not with Division of Corporations). The fee to file an assumed name certificate varies depending on the town. Application must be notarized prior to filing.

  2. DBA filed by an organized entity (such as LLC or corporation) is registered by filing an "assumed name" form with Maine Division of Corporations. This application does not need to be notarized prior to filing.

    Important to note: Maine distinguishes between "assued name", which is an equivalent of DBA, and "fictitious name", which is a name adopted by a foreign corporation authorized to carry on activities in this State because its real name is unavailable.

We can help you research the assumed or fictitious business name of your choice, and prepare and file all the necessary registration paperwork with the municipal clerk of your choice (or the Division of Corporations) - all you need to do is complete our simple application below.
