    New member here and first time posting. Hopefully I have the right area for this question.

    Ill try and explain my question the best I can.

    Im going to register a corporation. My business has somewhat two divisions. What I want to do is operate it all as a whole book wise, but be able to run the second half under a different name.
    Mainly for advertising reasons.
    So it would be BizName a Division of MainBizName.

    How do you do this?
    Do I have to reg. two corporations or is the second just a DBA or?

    I tried searching online but this I cant find an answer to. Im sure its mainly because I do not know the proper terminology or much about the ins and outs of the whole process.. Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks for the forum welcome.

    Biz is based in New York.

    I spend more time researching and did read, but not sure if correct, that for the second biz name(the division) that it just gets registered in the county as a DBA and automatically falls under the corporation name.
    Unsure if that is right as I didnt find much on it.
    -Also learned that the books are separate then...?

    Basically, as said, im just trying to be able to run certain services under a separate name for advertising reasons but was hoping to keep all the books as one.

    Thank you for any help
