Registering a DBA in Washington
Any company or individual that wishes to do business in Washington under a name other than its registered company name must register a "trade name" (an equivalent of DBA or "doing business as"). All trade names are registered with State of Washington Business Licensing Service.
Before applying for a fictitious business name a company must make sure that the name is available by searching Washington Secretary of State records. This process is similar to the first step in formation of a new company.
We can help you research the trade name of your choice, and prepare and file the trade name with the Business Licensing Service - all you need to do is complete our simple application below.
