Fictitious Business Names


A Fictitious Business Name is the name under which someone does business. They are registered with the county through the Clerk Recorder's office. Usually they are needed by people filing for a business license who are using a name other than their legal name to do business.

Often the fictitious business name is used as a point of discussion on the wiki when the page name is changed for a business. It has also been raised as an issue when businesses appear to not have their licenses in order.
