Trade Name Certificates for Businesses

State Statutes require that a Trade Name Certificate be filed by anyone doing business in the Town of Branford under a "fictitious" name. Banks require a copy of a trade name certificate in order to open a business account. The charge for filing is $10 via cash or check payable to "Branford Town Clerk" (no credit/debit cards accepted); the form should be originally signed and completed including notarization, and then recorded with the Town Clerk.

To revoke (cancel) a trade name certificate recorded with the Town Clerk, complete a Revocation of Trade Name and record it with the Town Clerk.  Filing fee of $10 applies.
