How We Can Help You Register a Trade Name in Washington, DC
Registering a trade name entitles you to use that name legally for your business. A trade name allows you to do business with the public, banks, and vendors under that name. You can also take legal action under your trade name. Once a trade name is registered, it needs to be renewed with the DC Government every two years in order to maintain it. If your trade name expires, you will no longer have any legal right to use that name, allowing anyone else in DC to register it, and keeping you from being able to register it again.
