Should I file for a DBA to simply operate without "LLC" at the end of my name? In other words, if I am XYZ LLC and want to simply use the name XYZ, should I file? Also, I plan to move and operate my business ONLY in Los Angeles, but my LLC was registered to a San Diego business address because I do not yet have an LA address at this time. I have to file the DBA in my "principal place of business." Can I file just in LA and use my San Diego business address on the form since I won't actually be conducting business until I get to LA? Do I have to register in San Diego too since that's currently the address listed? Should I just wait until I move to LA and then file?
