What is a Business Certificate?
A Business Certificate is a registration of a business that is being conducted within the Town of Winchendon. It is commonly referred to as a "d/b/a form" or "Doing Business As". Its purpose is primarily for consumer protection and public information purposes. Essentially, the public has a right to know who "is"îa particular business, since a customer will not know who "owns" the business simply by the name of that business.
