Businesses often use a different name from the formal registration name when doing business. These "other names" are called alternate, fictitious, or 'doing business as' names for corporations. Individuals and proprietorships will use a 'trading as' name for the business.

You may browse the business trade names online free of charge. If you prefer, you may request the search by letter but there is a fee of $1.00 per name for written and requests made in person. Copies may also be obtained at the county where the tradename was filed.

In addition, a status report for the business may be ordered online or in writing for a fee of $5.00 per report.
