Registering a DBA in Michigan
Michigan has separate procedures for filing DBA (also called "assumed name"), depending on the type of company filing it:
DBA filed by an individual (sole proprietorship) or general partnership is registered by filing an asssumed name application with the County Clerk's Office in the county where the business is located. The fee to file an assumed name varies depending on the county. Application must be notarized prior to filing, and accompanies by copy of state issued ID of all parties involved.
DBA filed by an organized entity (such as LLC or corporation) is registered by filing a Certificate of Assumed Name with Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Corporations, Securities & Commercial Licensing Bureau, Corporation Division. This application does not need to be notarized prior to filing.
We can help you research the assumed name of your choice, and prepare and file all the necessary registration paperwork with the county clerk of your choice (or the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, depending on your company structure) - all you need to do is complete our simple application below.
