Pennsylvania – Fictitious Name Filings

The Pennsylvania Corporation Bureau recently made changes to the way it handles fictitious name registrations. Prior to April 25, 2011, an entity was able to register a fictitious name that was the same as the corporate name, without the corporate ending. For example, a company such as “Paper Pushers, Inc.” was able to register a fictitious name of “Paper Pushers”. A filing of this type is no longer acceptable and will not be filed by the Pennsylvania Corporation Bureau.
