Q. want to get a Dba and i have to publish it in newspaper not sure how and what address i will put if my store is online
A: In Florida, Section 865.09 of the Florida Statutes requires the one-time publication of a legal notice of the fictitious name in a newspaper in the county where the principal place of the business will be located. I believe your residence address would be the location of your business.. After publication, the newspaper sends you a proof of publication. Upon receipt of the proof of publication, you can electronically file of a fictitious name registration with the Florida Department of State through Section 865.09 of the Florida Statutes provides that: A person may not engage in business under a fictitious name unless the person first registers the name with the division by filing a sworn statement listing: (a) The name to be registered.   (b) The mailing address of the business.   (c) The name and address of each owner and, if a business entity, its federal employer’s identification number and Florida incorporation, organization or registration number. (d) Certification by the applicant that the intention to register such fictitious name has been advertised at least once in a newspaper as defined in chapter 50 in the county where the principal place of business of the applicant will be located. Such statement shall be accompanied by the applicable processing fee (currently, $50) Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, a fictitious name registered as provided in this section for a corporation, limited liability company, limited liability partnership, or limited partnership is not required to contain the designation of the type of legal entity in which the person or business is organized, including the terms “corporation,” “limited liability company,” “limited liability partnership,” “limited partnership,” or any abbreviation or derivative thereof.
