How to File a DBA in Harris County TX?

Who must file an Assumed Name Certificate in Harris County Texas?


  • The Texas Business and Commerce Code require businesses to File Assumed Name certificates. In addition, most banks will not allow a business checking account to open without a proper filing.
  • DBA in Houston TX will be registered if you are using a business name to advertise your business. DBA can be registered under your legal name as a sole proprietorship or a legal entity registered with the secratary of state Texas.
  • The filing neither of an assumed name certificate nor the reservation or registration of a company name imparts any real protection to the party filing. It is merely a formal process that informs the public of the registered agent for a business, and where an official contact made with the business.
  •  Decide on the name of your business.
  • Search the County Assumed Names records for availability of the name of the business.
  • It is always best to search all variations of the business name.


Requirement to file Sole Proprietorship in Harris County TX:


  • If a corporation and an unincorporated company have very similar names and there is a problem, neither automatically has the right to the name. If both parties have properly filed the assumed name certificate the courts will most likely have to decide this matter. Therefore,  Ensure the name availability before submitting the application with the county' clerk's office.
  • You must send a written request and a self- addressed stamped envelope. You will need to request whether you need an unincorporated or incorporated form.
  • If the business will operate as a sole proprietorship or a partnership, an assumed name certificate for each name (or deviation of that name) the business will use must be on file with the county clerk in each county in which the business will operate. If the business will operate as a corporation, and the business will be identified by a name other than the corporate name, an assumed name certificate (D.B.A.) will need to be filed with each county in which the business will operate under the assumed name.
