is a "dba" judgement personally liable?


Recommended Posts

actually the biz is incorporated and the individual suing knew that so he sued me as xxxdba "unknown entity or structure"..in our answer to the court we stated we were incorporated...long story short,,,since that was how the opposing party filed suit naming me xxxxxdba "unknown entity or structure" that is how the judgement reads.....

It depends.

A sole proprietorship or general partnership would offer you no personal protection against a lawsuit vs the business.

If you were a corporation or LLC, they'd have to pierce the corporate veil to make you personally liable for debts of the corporation.

im aware of the liability issue between corp and personal debts.....let me rephrase the question..when the cra sees the judgement,will it be on my personal credit report? i was the registered agent for the corp so they sued me as xxxxdba "blah blahblah"...and if the cra reports it, can i fight it as being a debt of the corporation,not me personally?for credit reporting purposes,not liability reasons...

As the registered agent for the s-corp, you still would get the summons. If they messed up and named you personally and not the corporation you can file a motion to vacate the judgment since you were not personally liable.
