Iowa Fictitious Name Registration
Iowa Fictitious Name registration for only $39 + Gov Fees. Ecompanies USA registers your new Iowa Fictitious Name online with the Iowa Department of State, Corporations Division.
Sole proprietorships, general partnerships, and corporations doing business under an assumed name different than their legal names are required to register this business name before start using it. Registration is done by filing a Statement of Fictitious Name Registration with the Iowa Secretary of State, Corporations Office Division.
Registration places your business name in the public record maintained by the Iowa Secretary of State, Corporations Office Division. This allows consumers and business people to find the owners or the principal behind a business name operating in Iowa.
The legal name of a business is the name of the person or entity that owns a business. If you are the sole owner of your business, its legal name is your full name. If your business is a partnership, the legal name is the name given in your partnership agreement or the last names of the partners. For limited liability corporations (LLCs) and corporations, the business’ legal name is the one that was registered with the state government.
Your business’ legal name is required on all government forms and applications, including your application for employer tax IDs, licenses and permits. However, if you want to operate, open a shop or sell your products under a different name, then you need to file a “fictitious name” registration with the Iowa Corporations Division.
