A business name does not have a legal existence in its own right. It is simply a name used by one or more persons to represent their business to the public. That means the sole proprietor or partners are personally responsible for the debts and obligations of the business.

Registering a business name does not grant any right of ownership of the name. It is simply proof that the name is being used by a particular business.

If you need help deciding if a sole proprietorship, partnership or corporation is the best form of business, we highly recommended you get legal advice.

Service providers will charge a government fee and a service fee to register your business name.
