Registering a DBA in Virginia
DBA in Virginia is called "fictitious name". Virginia has two different procedures for filing fictitious names, depending on the type of company filing it:
DBA filed by an individual (sole proprietorship) or general partnership is registered by filing a Certificate Of Assumed Or Fictitious Name with the clerk's office of the circuit court of the jurisdiction in which the fictitious name is to be used. The fee to file a fictitious name varies depending on the jurisdiction, and application must be notarized prior to filing.
DBA filed by an organized entity (such as LLC or corporation) is registered by first following the procedure described above under (1), and then obtaining a certified copy of the filed Certificate Of Assumed Or Fictitious Name, and filing it in the Clerk's Office of the Commission.
