New Mexico – DBA

File a New Mexico DBA

Tradename (D.B.A.) and Trademark Issues.
The State of New Mexico does not require that a business register its use of a tradename (sometimes referred to as a fictitious name, doing business as or d.b.a.). The use of a tradename that is different from the legal name of the business can have legal implications that should be discussed with your attorney.

If the business has a unique tradename or mark that distinguishes it from other businesses, the business may want to register the mark with the New Mexico Secretary of State. New Mexicos trademark and service mark registration law is designed to mirror federal trademark protection.

It should be noted that the Secretary of State and the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission-Corporations Bureau, each maintain separate data bases, and registration with one of these State offices may not prevent someone else from registering the same name with the other State office.

Other Applicable Laws
Depending upon the nature of the business, and its intended activities, other State or local laws could affect your business. For example, if your business intends to raise capital by issuing securities, you may be required to comply with the New Mexico Securities Act, which is administered by the Securities Division of the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department.

Businesses Organized in Other States.
Businesses that have been organized in other states may be required to register and qualify to do business in New Mexico. Foreign corporations and limited liability companies should contact the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission-Corporations Bureau. Foreign partnerships should contact the New Mexico Secretary of State.
