As the title states, I'm interested in making a DBA for an LLC that gives some indication that it's a company rather than an sole proprietorship DBA. Can the DBA terminate in "LLC" or "Co"? Most examples on the Internet show DBAs without such termination.

To clarify, the entity making the DBA would be an LLC in good standing.

"You cannot add any misleading business titles such as “LLC,” “Inc.” or “Corp.” to the end of your name. These abbreviations give the impression that the business is structured in a specific manner, which has various legal and tax implications. There are strict requirements in becoming a corporation or LLC, as well as liability issues which could mislead the public if you use these monikers." (from this website, the first to come up in a Google search).

  • this doen't address the question which is about the case when the underlying entity is an LLC or a Corp. Can the entity XYZ LCC have a DBA of ABC LLC is the question. – George White Sep 22 at 20:39
  • You can only call yourself 'ABC LLC' if you have fulfilled the requirements, which XYZ has not. Whether "you" are a company or an individual is not mentioned, and does not seem relevant. – Tim Lymington supports Monica Sep 22 at 21:02
  • from the question "o clarify, the entity making the DBA would be an LLC in good standing." So in the example XYZ IS an LLC., The "you" is the partnership XYZ LLC. – George White Sep 22 at 21:30
  • @George; that's why I said it's not relevant. – Tim Lymington supports Monica Sep 23 at 9:21
