DBA "Doing Business As"

Registration is required by State Law and is done through the County Clerk's Office. The first step is to search the businesses registered in Ottawa County to confirm that the business name you have selected is available. The Clerk is authorized to reject any assumed name, which is likely to mislead the public, or is similar to other business names as to lead to confusion or deception. The law requires that a sole proprietor or co-partners file their business at the County Clerk's Office. A DBA protects a business from possible name duplications by other businesses.
