No. Bidding in a name other than as licensed has been considered unlicensed activity. Even if the contractor owns both companies, they must bid in the name as licensed (the licensed legal entity providing the financial statement, bond and insurance). Contractors may obtain more than one license should they have additional companies separated for bookkeeping or tax reasons. In some cases, their licensed entity could contract with the owner, and subcontract to their entity, unless the subcontract requires a license (as listed above). See TCA 62-6-114 and Rule 0680-1-.25. The entity contracting with the owner needs to be licensed in the same name as operating; and subcontractors required to be licensed must contract in the name as licensed.
May a contractor bid in another name other than as licensed?
