Once you have performed the name search, complete the appropriate form.  Various assumed name forms are shown (below) and may be downloaded for your convenience.  The fee for recording an assumed name is $26.  The completed form may be hand-delivered or mailed to the Register of Deeds office for recording.  (The mailing address is at the bottom of each form.)
All forms need to be notarized before filing and are designed to print on legal size paper.  The Register of Deeds Office cannot notarize business forms.
Note: The Wake County Register of Deeds Office is only a recording agency.  You may need to consult with an attorney for legal advice for questions that pertain to registering your business name.  If you have any questions please contact the Information Center at 919-856-5476 or rodinfo@wakegov.com.
