How to File a Minnesota DBA

Since your Minnesota DBA will be filed in the same jurisdiction as incorporated entities in the state, it’s a good idea to do a name search at the state level.

The information below is required:

  • Your assumed name
  • The address of your principal place of business
  • The name(s) and address(es) of the person(s) doing business as the assumed name
  • The dated signature of one of those owners, along with the printed name of the signer
