Do You Need to Renew?
A fictitious business name statement expires five years from the date it is filed in the County Clerk. A renewal of a fictitious business name statement must be filed prior to the date of expiration if you intend to continue doing business under that name and if there are no changes from the original.
How to Renew
A renewal requires completing the online application here and paying a $26 renewal filing fee, along with $5 for each additional business name/registrant.
