Filing a Florida DBA

Regardless of your entity type (sole proprietorship, unincorporated partnership, LLC, corporation—anything), when you file your DBA—short for "doing business as"—you’ll do so at the state level. Florida does not have individual county filings for DBA filings. A DBA may also be known as a fictitious name, fictitious business name, or FBN; an assumed name or assumed business name; or a trade name.
