How do I obtain a Business Certificate?
What is a business certificate?
Commonly referred to by the name “D.B.A.” (“doing business as”), a business certificate creates a public record of the name and address of the owner(s) of a business. Consumers are entitled to this information and it may not otherwise be readily available.
Who must file a business certificate?
Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 110, & 5 states that any person conducting business in the Commonwealth under any title other than the real name of the person conducting the business must file a certificate. Under Chapter 110, & 6 a business certificate is not required if a corporation is doing business in its true corporate name, or if a partnership is doing business under any title which includes the true surname of any partner. Certain other associations and partnerships may also be exempt (refer to above citation for details.)
How do I file or renew a business certificate?
Forms are available in the Town Clerk’s Office. Each person named on the certificate must sign the form in person at the Town Clerk’s Office. Proper identification will be required. The filing fee is $20.00.
