Business Certificate (DBA)

Any business that is not a corporation, doing business in the Town of Dracut is required by law to file a "Doing Business As" (DBA) certificate with the Town Clerk's Office. 

The first step in the process is to get a New Business Determination form, which needs to be signed off by the Building Inspector. Once you have the signed determination form, you may bring it to the Town Clerk's Office to begin the process of filing for your business certificate.

Please note the Business Certificate is a notarized document that requires all owners listed to present picture identification in order to have their signatures notarized. Once issued, the certificate is renewable every four years. The filing fee is $40.
