Who must file a business certificate?

Any person, whether individually or as a partnership, conducting business under any title other than the complete real name of the owner(s) must file a business certificate. The certificate must be filed with the Town Clerk in every city or town where an office of said business may be situated (Massachusetts General Law Chapter 110, Section 5).

You may file a Business Certificate either in person at the Town Clerk's office or by mail. To file by mail, please complete the certificate form, have your signature notarized and enclose a check made payable to the Town of Kingston in the amount of $40.
