A "DBA" stands for "Doing Business As," also known as a "trade name," "fictitious business name," or "assumed name." It's not a separate legal structure like a corporation or LLC, but rather a registration that allows a business to operate under a name different from the legal name of its owner or the entity.
Here are the key points about a DBA:
DBAs are a straightforward way for businesses to operate under a different name while maintaining the legal structure of the owner(s). However, they do not provide the same level of legal protection or tax benefits as forming a separate legal entity like a corporation or an LLC. As regulations and requirements regarding DBAs vary by location, consulting with a local attorney or business advisor is recommended to ensure compliance with local laws and regulations.
