The Dare County Register of Deeds has announced that the department now offers online filing for certificates of assumed business names.
A certificate of assumed business name or “doing business as” (DBA) form can be recorded in the Dare County Register of Deeds office or online by individuals or entities conducting business in Dare County, multiple counties or all 100 counties in North Carolina.
A sole proprietorship, general partnership, limited partnership, LLC or corporation engaged in business in Dare County under a different assumed name might consider recording a DBA form at the Dare County Register of Deeds office. In many cases, a financial institution will require that this form be recorded in order to open a business account.

If the form is submitted online before 4:30 p.m. on a business day, it will be recorded by the Dare County Register of Deeds office within the same day.
Please consult a business advisor or an attorney if you have questions about whether recording this form is required for your business.
