    I was going to file a DBA for my business I just started until I reached enough funds to incorporate or change into a LLC. I live in Florida, however, I'm finding it difficult to figure out what would be the cheapest and timely manner. Any help with this would be deeply appreciative.
    Thanks

    Sky9,

    To get a DBA in Florida you need to file an application with county clerk in the county where your business is located. Keep in mind though –*once you register a DBA you cannot use this name to register any other entity (like LLC), until this DBA is cancelled. I would recommend you to consider incorporating instead, the difference in price is really insignificant, and it can be written as deduction (among other benefits of course).
