Business Registration (DBA)

Our offices are now open for all services except funeral homes Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.  Service to funeral homes will continue by appointment until further notice.


If you plan to come into our office, please be advised that you will have to go through a short health-screening procedure which includes having your temperature taken and answering a few questions. You will be required to wear a mask or face-covering at all times. Due to limited space inside the offices, it will be necessary for you to have all of your requests/applications completed before you are allowed inside the office, including having your identification documents and payment ready. Please keep in mind that our office closes at 4:30 p.m. and some services can take up to 20 minutes to perform. Please allow for this when coming in to our office.

The Muskegon County Business Registration forms are now available online in PDF format. 

Before you go into the Clerk’s Office, you will be required to have the following items out and ready:

1.  The completed Certificate of Assumed Name or Co-Partnership (NOT LLC);

3.  Payment of $10.00.  We accept cash, check/money order, or charge.  Make checks/money orders payable to Muskegon County Clerk and put your ID and telephone number on it.

Once you have all items completed and ready, please go to the Clerk’s door and wait to be called, adhering to social distancing rules.
