Carnahan issues name deadline
By THE COLUMBIA TRIBUNE’S STAFF
Missouri business owners face a deadline of Aug. 28, 2009 to renew fictitious name registrations that were filed on or before Aug. 28, 2004. This is the first time that those registrations have had to be renewed, said Secretary of State Robin Carnahan.
Fictitious names are registered by individuals who want to do business under a name other than their actual name. Corporations and limited liability companies must file a fictitious name if they conduct business under a name other than the name of their company.
