Trading Name Compliance

Trading Name / Assumed Name Compliance

name-services-1In the U.S., a trading as name is called an assumed name. The rules governing assumed names vary between states.

Registration and timely renewal establishes the use of your name. In many states, this prevents other entities from registering the same or similar name.

The requirements and renewal periods vary tremendously from state to state and can make managing these names confusing and difficult. That’s why we’re here to help.
