It has come to my attention that as of March 1st the Contractors State License Board now has fictitious business name requirements stating that any business applying for a license with a DBA needs to submit a copy of the filed Fictitious Business Name (FBN) statement with the application before they will post the application. Just one more thing to make this already difficult process more difficult and take that much longer.
Remember, if your contractor’s license business name does not denote the trade classification you are apply for, they will require you to provide a fictitious business name.
Examples: 123 Corp applying for a B license would need a DBA like 123 Construction. Or Shocking, Inc. applying for a C-10 license would need a DBA like Shocking Electrical.
To file a FBN, do a google search for How to File an FBN in (your county).
