How to Open a DBA Account


Opening a DBA account isn't very hard and can be done by almost anyone. You'll learn step by step how to set up and open a DBA account.

Things You'll Need

  • Business name
  • Social security number
  • Local bank

Come up with a business name.

You will need to register this name as a "fictitous name" on your state's business site (i.e., for Florida).

Print out the confirmation page and take it to the bank with your social security number and they will set up a DBA Account.

File all of your info from the bank and make sure you register every 5 years.

Tips & Warnings

  • Think of a creative business name and make sure you don't choose the same name as another business.
  • Be sure to register every five years so your DBA name stays active.
  • Don't try to go to the bank without a confirmation page that you've registered your DBA.
