Commonly referred to by the name “D.B.A” (doing business as) a business certificate creates a public record of the name and address of the owner(s) of a business.
Any person conducting business in the Town of Dracut, under any title other than the real name of the owner, whether individually or as a partnership. If a partnership, everyone must sign the application in the presence of the Town Clerk or a Notary Public.
A Business Certificate is in force and effect for four (4) years from the date of issue. It must be renewed every four (4) years for as long as the business is operating.
The Business Certificate does not allow or permit any business rights with respect to the provisions of the Town of Dracut Zoning Bylaws and is not a permit to conduct business in a residential district unless is meets the most recent requirements which can be determined by reaching out to the Building Commissioner.
