Is there a way to pay with them and, based on your feedback, should I ask them “branch cross opening”? You may choose to do business under a name other than your legal name. For example, your company might be called Lightfoot Mercantile Holdings LLC, but you work under the Alphaplus Wholesale and Distribution brand. In these cases, you must go to your authorities to inform them of the name you are using. However, if your LLC needs to work under a different name than the one you registered with the state (and you have a DBA), be sure to bring its permission.
