Assumed Name Certificates

Assumed Name Certificates (DBA or "Doing Business As")

FORM: Assumed Name (DBA) Certificate (PDF)

FORM: Withdrawal Notice of Assumed Name (PDF)

FORM: Affidavit of Facts for Withdrawal (PDF)

A company doing business in Texas must file an Assumed Name Certificate (d.b.a. 'Doing Business As') with the county clerk of each county in which the business will be conducted.


Assumed Name Certificates are good for 10 years from the date of filing or a shorter period of time may be indicated on the application.


Currently the only method to ensure a thorough search of an Assumed Name is to personally appear in the County Clerk's Office to conduct the search.


Once your search is completed, the application must be signed in front of a notary public.  There are a few notaries at the courthouse.   Then your application can be filed at the clerk’s office.


The fee for an Assumed Name Certificate to be filed and recorded is $25.00 for the first page, $4.00 for each additional page.  Each additional signer after the first is $.50 each.


Clerk's Office Payment Options


The same fees apply for Abandonment (withdrawal) of Assumed Name filings.  The withdrawal of a partner or abandonment of an assumed name is recorded in the same office.


NOTE: Filing an Assumed Name Certificate does not prevent another party from using the same name. Direct any legal question regarding a business name to an attorney.
