A business certificate is the registration of a business that is being conducted and is located within the Town of Dartmouth. It is commonly called a doing business as (DBA). Its primary purpose is to protect consumers or creditors by identifying the names and address of the owners of the business.
The issuance of a Business Certificate by the Town Clerk does not certify or imply that the business registered thereunder is in conformance with applicable local, state or federal laws or regulations. It shall be the responsibility of the business owner to demonstrate compliance with all Town of Dartmouth Building, Zoning, Health, and Licensing requirements.
