FILING INSTRUCTIONS
CERTIFICATE OF RENEWAL OF ASSUMED NAME
NAME
The certificate must state the assumed name under which business will be conducted or transacted. The assumed name must be a name that is
distinguishable upon the records of the Secretary of State from any other name previously filed and on record with the Secretary of State. A separate
certificate must be filed for each assumed name that is being adopted by the business.
KRS 365.015(3) requires the certificate of assumed name for an individual (sole proprietorship) to be filed with the county clerk where the person is deemed
a resident for the purposes of and under the provisions of KRS Chapter 355. An assumed name registration is effective for a term of five (5) years from the
date it is filed with the Secretary of State and may be renewed for a successive term upon filing a renewal certificate. A renewal certificate must be filed with
the Secretary of State within six (6) months prior to the expiration date. A renewal certificate filed with the Secretary of State renews the assumed name for
a five-year term. The business entity should arrange its own reminder of the renewal deadline, since the Secretary of State is not required to send renewal
certificates. Any certificate of assumed name in effect on July 15, 1998, shall continue in effect for five (5) years and may be renewed by filing a
renewal certificate with the Secretary of State.
