How to obtain a Trade Name Certificate (d/b/a)?

Whenever you are conducting business under a name other than your own or the corporation’s, you must obtain a “doing business as” (dba) certificate from the Town Clerk in the Town where the business is located. The d/b/a/ certificate is maintained in a public file and allows consumers to identify and locate the proprietor.

In Bethany, the filing fee for a d/b/a/ certificate is $10.00. The certificate may be filed in person or by mail.

For further information, call the Town Clerk’s Office.
