BUSINESS CERTIFICATE FORMS ARE PROVIDE ABOVE BUT THEY CAN ONLY BE ACCEPTED WHEN ALL PARTIES ARE PRESENT AND THEY MUST BE SIGNED IN THE TOWN CLERKS OFFICE.  THEY CANNOT BE ACCEPTED IF THE SIGNATURE HAS ALREADY BEEN COMPLETED.  IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO COME TO THE TOWN CLERKS OFFICE TO COMPLETE THE FORMS YOU MAY SIGN THE FORM IN THE PRECENCE OF A NOTARY AND HAVE THE NOTARY COMPLETE THE NOTARY SECTION ON THE FORM.    

Massachusetts General Law Chapter 110 Section 5, requires that any person conducting business under any business name other than the real name of the person conducting the business must file a Doing Business As certificate with the Town Clerk’s office.  A person, in this case, is defined as an individual, a partnership or a corporation.

Exemptions to filing are allowed if the corporation is doing business in its true corporate name, or if a partnership id doing business under any title that includes the surname of any partner.  Other exemptions exist for trust and limited partnerships.

The Town Clerk’s office registers a business by way of the Business or DBA Certificate.  This registration does not allow or permit any business rights with respect to the provisions of the Zoning Bylaws nor is it a substitute for any other license or permit required by the town.  Please contact the Zoning Enforcement Officer in the Inspectional Services Department for questions regarding permitted uses at your location.
