Registering a DBA in West Virginia
West Virginia has separate procedures for filing DBA (also called "trade 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 a trade name varies depending on the county. Application must be notarized prior to filing.
DBA filed by an organized entity (such as LLC or corporation) is registered by filing a Trade Name Registration Application with Business Organizations Division of West Virginia Secretary of State. 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 Business Organizations Division, depending on your company structure) - all you need to do is complete our simple application below.
