A trade name is a Wyoming DBA (doing business as). Wyoming trade name registration permits a company to operate under a name other than its legal name.

Your personal assets will not be protected if you register a DBA in Wyoming. Forming a formal company structure, such as an LLC or corporation, can provide you with liability protection as well as a business name.

Wyoming Trade Name Registration

It is simple to register a Wyoming trade name, commonly known as a DBA.

A DBA is solely used for branding purposes. A DBA does not safeguard your personal assets in the event that your company is sued. As a result, we highly advise that a DBA be utilised exclusively by a formal company structure such as an LLC or corporation to add new brands to an existing firm.

If you operate an informal company (sole proprietorship or partnership), we highly advise you to create an LLC to keep your business and personal assets distinct. The name of the LLC might be chosen to serve as the business’s brand name.
