San Luis Obispo County information for filing a Fictitious Business Name Statement


State law requires that within the next 40 days of filing at the County, the registrant must publish a statement in a newspaper of general circulation in the county in which the principal place of business is located once a week for four successive weeks. You need to have a unique business name. Check HERE for available business names.


  • See the San Luis Obispo County website to file your FBN and info on county fees.
  • There is a cost of $60 to publish the Fictitious Business Name Statement for four weeks in The Paso Robles Press. After that, we take care of providing proof of publication to the county.
