Michigan Fictitious Name Laws

Michigan law restricts and prohibits your corporation from doing business under any name other than its complete corporate name UNLESS you first comply with the statutory process to register a fictitious name.

The fee for filing a corporate fictitious name is $10.00.

You must be certain to observe this restriction when advertising your business, executing documents, and any other activities related to the business of your corporation. Each document that you sign should be in the name of the Corporation. This is also important for assuring that corporate formalities are followed and to take away any argument that a creditor could use to attach your personal assets for liabilities that arise through the activities of your incorporated business.

Guide For filing Fictitious Names

NOTE- Securing an assumed name registration does not give you any rights to exclude any other party from using the name that you register as an assumed name. If you wish to protect your name, you will need to file a state and federal trademark application.
