Just recording an assumed business name does nothing to keep the name exclusive nor does it avoid personal liability for the business owners. Only setting up a limited liability company (DBA) will protect the name at the state level and also protect the owners of personal liability. 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. Note that once you incorporate no one can register the limited liability company (DBA) name at the state level. .|
