Registering a DBA in Tennessee
Any company (with the exception of sole proprietorships and general partnerships) that wishes to do business in Tennessee under a name other than its registered company name must register a so-called "assumed name" (an equivalent of DBA or "doing business as"). All assumed names are registered by filing Application For Registration Of Assumed Name with the Tennessee Secretary of State.
General Partnerships must file Statement of Partnership Authority with the Secretary of State, where the partnership lists its chosen name, in a similar fashion to all organized entities (such as LLC, corporations, LLP, etc.)
Before applying for an assumed name a company must make sure that the name is available by searching Tennessee Secretary of State records. This process is similar to the first step in formation of a new company.
We can help you research the fictitious business name of your choice, and prepare and file the Application For Registration Of Assumed Name with Tennessee Secretary of State - all you need to do is complete our simple application below.
