Do I have to repeat the LLC Publication if I change the Name of the LLC?

A reader asked this question in response to my post: Taking Care of the LLC Publication Requirement:

“I was hoping you could illuminate something for your readers. If a business were to file a pub requirement under one name (i.e. Acme, LLC.) but then decided that they wanted a different name and started a DBA name (i.e. Taylor Capital) would another NYS publication requirement need to be filed under the DBA name?”

Answer:  No.  The publication requirement has nothing to do with choosing to use a name for your business that is different from your legal name, i.e. choosing to “do business as”.  If you want to use a different business name after you properly complied with the publication requirement for your LLC, you can do so, as long as you follow the “doing business as” rules.

P.s.  I welcome questions from readers and will try to address them in the blog where appropriate.  However, none of my posts constitutes legal advice, you cannot rely on my blog as a substitute for legal advice, and there won’t be an attorney-client relationship between us.
