Do I need to register my business as a DBA (doing business as)?

The State of Georgia requires all businesses not registered as Corporations, Limited Liability Company, Limited or General Partnership to register their business name. Lumpkin County cannot issue a business licenses without verification of this type of registration. All registrations are done at the Lumpkin County Clerk of Court’s office located at:
325 Riley Road
Dahlonega, GA 30533

The only exception is for a sole proprietor, if the full legal name of the owner is part of the business name (example: John J. Doe Wrecker Service).
