One Perspective

This may help. You can find this out by calling or visiting the Tax Assessor's Office for that town or city. You will need the address for the business. If the business rents it's location, the owner of the building will come up, not neccessarilly the business. also it could be listed under a real estate group with a general name, which won't be that much of a help. You can also check with the town clerk's office to see if the business is listed un the DBA files. Finally, you can visit the local land records office and search for the legal owner of the address where the business is located.

Another perspective

This may help. All new businesses are required to register their business name with some agency of the government. Banks, landlords, even the phone company require proof of registration prior to providing their services. Some states permit registration of DBAs at the local level - city, county, township or borough - but most process all registration including DBAs, corporations, partnerships, etc. at the state level.

All 50 states provide a free online search facility where you can locate the business registration by searching for the company by name. However, some search sites only provide information for registered corporations and many corporations do not always register in the state where they are doing business. Registrations include the business name, owner name, business location, and much more.

The Consumer Advisory Council provides a listing of links to all 50 state registration office search pages at the link provided below.


It can be extremely difficult to find the name of the owner of a business if the owner doesn't want that information readily available. You may need to engage the services of a professional. Not all businesses are properly registered and many business owners are skilled at burying their identities under a maze of paperwork. Even professionals can encounter a "dead end' when searching for the name of a business owner.

Can owner of a company be held personally liable?

The owner can be held personally liable for business debts, but it depends on the business structure and what type of contract the owner holds. If the owner is operating a sole proprietorship (he/she is the only owner), the owner and the business are technically considered the same entity, meaning the owner has full personal liability for any business debt. In a partnership, the business belongs to each partner, meaning that business debt also belongs to each partner personally. Each partner is liable for 100% of business debts. The only time an owner is not held personally liable for debts is in a corporation or LLC. In both of these cases, the business and owner are considered separate entities and, in theory, the owner could have no personal liability for business debt. Liability could occur if the owner has signed a personal guarantee, has offered his/her property as collateral, has signed a contract in his/her own name, he/she uses personal loans or credit cards to fund the business, or there is some sort of fraud or sloppy record-keeping.
