What Do They Mean by “Doing Business As (DBA)”

Sometimes it makes sense for a company to do business under a different name. To do this, the company has to file what’s known as a DBA—an abbreviation for “doing business as.” A DBA is also known as a “fictitious business name,” “trade name,” or “assumed name.” Sole proprietorship’s commonly use DBAs because a sole proprietorship’s official, legal name is simply the name of the owner. A DBA lets them use a real business name.

Running a Small Business? Are you sure what kind of records to keep?

You may choose any recordkeeping system suited to your business that clearly shows your income and expenses. The business you are in affects the type of records you need to keep for federal tax purposes. Your recordkeeping system should include a summary of your business transactions. This summary is ordinarily made in your business books (for example, accounting journals and ledgers). Your books must show your gross income, as well as your deductions and credits. For most small businesses, the business checking account is the main source for entries in the business books.
