|On Thursday, January 24, 2013 8:30:00 PM there was a question about Cleaning License In Wi . The cleaning business business category and cleaning business type, has 1 employees and located in Milwaukee Milwaukee County , WI 53222 and a business like market projection is a target fot the company as. deas XYZtch Asap Cleaning ConceptsCo This company name as well as any other business name must be filed with the clerk as a trade name registration and that requires a filing fee to be registered. A trade registration is requred but if the owner wants to use the business name exclusively he or she cannot because anyone else can also file the same trade name. Nor does the trade name registration protects the owner from personal legal or financial liability as forming a limited liability company (DBA) . It is perhaps a better choice to just incorporate for the same or a little higher fee because you will also have corporate protection for the business name and personal vs business liabilities. E.g. if your business has debts the lender can sue you personally to obtain a judgment vs your personal assets as opposed in the case you were a DBA where the lender could only sue the DBA directly and if the limited liability company (DBA) had no assets the lender could get nothing. A limited liability company (DBA) affords more prestige and it helps you obtain business loans. .|

A: You may have to get a new tax ID number if your status as a business changes. For example if you change from sole owner to a partnership or from DBA to DBA as well as when you buy a new business you need to get a new tax ID under your business name or individual name.
