I'm in the process of obtaining a business license and the first step is to fill out a form called: Certificate of Conducting Business under an Assumed Name For Individual. The form looks pretty simple to fill out except for the last section which I'm not too sure about. This is what the form looks like: (Keep in mind that this business does not currently exist. First time.) I HEREBY CERTIFY that I am conduction or transacting business under the name or designation of -I assume business name goes here- at -address goes here- My full name is -my name goes here- and I reside at -my address goes here- I FURTHER CERTIFY that I am the successor in interest to -What goes here? Business name? My name?- the person or persons heretofore using such name or names to carry on or conduct or transact business. -What goes here?- That last section (starting from I FURTHER CERTIFY...) confuses me a little bit. It looks like it's for an existing business that is being transferred from the previous owner to the new one. But this is not an existing business. I'm doing this for the first time. And yet that section MUST be filled out. Any idea what I should write in that section? Any help will be deeply appreciated.
