    If you do have to do it seperately it isn't hard. You just go to your city records building and purchase a dba. In dallas they cost $16. Not sure where you are located.

    Typically you will register your business name with the Secretary of State or other entity which handles that function. As a corporation, that too will be filed within your state and the Federal government. You should receive your Federal EIN (employee identification number) at such time. Normally an accountant or attorney will handle all of this for you. I would ask your accountant if he/she will handle all of this for you.
