    Help with filling out Assumed Name Certificate form

    sbus25 Newbie

      Hi, I live in New York and plan to form a sole proprietorship. I was told to file an assumed name certificate form but I'm having some problems filling it out.

       


      here is the form:
      http://www.dos.state.ny.us/corp/pdfs/dos1338.pdf*
      1. Name of Entity? would this be my name? or the business name that I'm planning to use?

      1a. Foreign Entities only?

      2. New York law formed or authorized under? should I check "Other" and fill in "Sole Proprietorship? I only plan to form a sole proprietorship business.

      3. Assumed Name? again, my name or business name?
      If anyone could help me, I would really appreciate it.

      Thanks.
