doing business as

Usually abbreviated as DBA, it indicates that a name that a company or individual is using when conducting business is not the legal name of that company or individual. For example, if a corporation that is legally registered as "XYZ123 Corp." operates under the business name "SuperMega Widget Company", in legal documents concerning its SuperMega Widget Company business it would say "XYZ123 Corp., DBA SuperMega Widget Company."
