What is the difference between Registering a PA DBA Name and Reserving a PA Company Name?

Registering a DBA Name with the Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth and Reserving a Company Name with the Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth are NOT the same.

Registering a DBA Name with the Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth is NOT the same as legally Registering a Corporation or LLC with the Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth.

When you legally Register a Corporation or LLC with the Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth there are certain tax and administrative obligations which must be met to keep the company in Good Standing.  Failing to keep up with those obligations can result in the administrative dissolution of your Pennsylvania company by the Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth.

The Pennsylvania state fees for Registering a DBA Name are less than the fees for Registering a Corporation or LLC and there are no tax or reporting obligation for a Registered Pennsylvania DBA Name.
