Do I need to register the name of my business? How do I go about it?

September 23rd, 2011 by Michael

If you are doing business under any name but your own, you are required to register with the Secretary of State. This requirement enables people to identify who is operating a particular business.

For information on how to register your name, visit the Secretary of State’s Web site. You can also call (603) 271-3246 weekdays 8 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m.-4 p.m. The Secretary of State’s office is located at the State House Annex, Third Floor, in Concord. The U.S. Small Business Administration hosts a kiosk with small business resource info at the Secretary of State’s office on Wednesdays, 1:30-3:30 p.m.
