f you are conducting business in Town under a name other than your own or the corporation’s, you must obtain a “doing business as” D.B.A. certificate from the Town Clerk. The D.B.A. certificate is maintained in a public virtual and allows consumers to identify and locate the owner of the business.
There is a $20 filing fee in Nahant for a D.B.A. certificate. The certificate may be renewed in person or by mail. The certificate must be renewed every four years. In addition, a letter of clearance must be obtained from the Building Inspector prior to filing a D.B.A. with the Town Clerk. Both the D.B.A. Request and D.B.A. Change Forms are provided below.
