Question:  How do I get a doing business as, aka a dba for my Arizona LLC?

Answer:  Arizona calls a “dba” a trade name.  An Arizona LLC gets an Arizona trade name (dba) by filing a Trade Name Registration Application with the Arizona Secretary of State and paying a $10 fee.  The Arizona Secretary of State will reject the trade name if it conflicts with an existing name or an AZ LLC, corporation, limited partnership or trade name.  Before applying for a trade name, read “How Do I Check if a Name is Available for a New Arizona LLC?
