* Corporations, limited partnerships, and limited liability companies are required by statute to conduct activities under their true legal name. If a corporation, limited partnership, or limited liability company desires to conduct activities under a name other than its true legal name, a certificate complying with Section 130 of the General Business Law must be filed with the New York State Department of State. All other entities such as general partnerships, sole proprietorships, and limited liability partnerships file an Assumed Name Certificate directly with the county clerk in each county in which the entity conducts or transacts business.
