Business Trade Name Registration

All small businesses must be registered in the county where they are conducting business. Most banks require a certified copy of a firm name registration to open a business bank account.

The owner can only register sole proprietors or partnerships. LLCs, DBAs, TBAs and corporations must register with the State of New Jersey. Please click here : http://www.nj.gov/njbusiness/registration/
