Whenever you are conducting a business under a name other than your own full name or the corporation’s, you must obtain a "doing business as" (dba) certificate from the Town Clerk’s Office in the Town where the business is located. The d/b/a certificate is maintained in a public file and allows consumers to identify and locate the proprietor.
In Tewksbury, the filing fee for a d/b/a certificate is $40.00. The certificate may be filed in person or by mail, the certificate is required to be notarized, and expires in four (4) years. For further information, phone the Town Clerk’s Office at 978-640-4355.
