Town of Stafford Trade Name Certificates
Any person doing business in the Town of Stafford in a name other than their own must file a Trade Name Certificate with the Town Clerk, or register with the Secretary of the State of Connecticut as a corporation or a limited liability company.
If operations cease under the initial trade name, or a trade name has changed, a Trade Name Cancellation must be filed. All initial signers of the Trade Name Certificate must sign the cancellation.

Both forms require notarization.
