You can, but keep in mind that according to the Uniform Commercial Code, filing under a trade name (dba) alone is not sufficient to perfect a security interest. In order to perfect, a secured party must file under the legal name of the debtor; a “dba” name does not constitute a legal name. A secured party may file under both the legal name and the trade name if they wish.

Please refer to our previous blog post, Omit “dba” Notation From UCC Filings, for more information on how best to list debtor names when filing under a legal name and a “dba” name.
