Do You know that if you operate a business in Missouri under a fictitious name, you must renew that fictitious name every five years with the Secretary of State? It’s true. And it does not matter whether you are operating just as a person or as a general partnership, a corporation, a Limited Liability Company, or other form of business organization.
This statutory requirement came into effect on August 28, 2004 and provided that the registration is only good for five years. So, unless you have renewed your registration, it has now expired and you need to renew such registration right a way.
