This is also known as a “d/b/a” or “doing business as” filing. If you plan to do business under a trade name that is different than the legal name of your business entity, then you are required to file a Certificate of Assumed Name with the clerk of the circuit court in the city or county where you are doing business. The filing fees vary by locality, but are generally under $20. You are then required to obtain a certified copy or “Copy Teste” from the court clerk and then file that document with the State Corporation Commission. The SCC filing fee for this document is $10.
