WAKE COUNTY REGISTER OF DEEDS OFFICE FILES OFFICIAL FIRST AND SECOND ASSUMED BUSINESS NAME IN NC UNDER NEW SECRETARY OF STATE SYSTEM

Raleigh, NC – With a NC General Statute change that took effect on December 1, 2017, Wake County Register of Deeds Deputy Director, Luther Snyder, and ROD IT Systems Administrator, Al Whitehouse, successfully recorded their individual “Assumed Business Names” through the Wake County Register of Deeds office to the NC Secretary of State’s new central database. On the morning of Dec. 1st Mr. Snyder recorded first with his assumed business name, “Snyder Interactive” and Mr. Whitehouse was second with his assumed business name, “Peak City Design”.

Luther Snyder Assumed Name Filing.JPGWake County Register of Deeds, Charles P. Gilliam states, “Now, there can be a single filing in our office for $26 that covers as many counties as desired, including the entire state. Previously it was necessary to file in each NC county where business was being conducted and pay multiple $26 fees. This is a great new convenience, not only to business in the Wake County area, but also to businesses across the state. I am proud to announce the assumed name filings process is working correctly in our office.”

North Carolina law now requires companies (Corporations, LLC’s, and limited partnerships) that engage in business under an assumed name to file a certificate with a register of deeds in the county in which the person or entity engages in business.

The assumed names can be filed at Wake County Register of Deeds office. Visit our web page: http://www.wakegov.com/rod/business/Pages/default.aspx for the new forms and more details.

Certificates of assumed names filed under the prior law will expire December 1, 2022. Anyone desiring to engage their business in the state under an assumed name after that date must file an assumed business name certificate in the new form. The new certificate names, and amendments to and withdrawals from are transmitted into a statewide, publicly available, central database maintained by the NC Secretary of State. A single registration can be effective for multiple counties. The database can be accessed here: www.sosnc.gov/abn/search.
