A company can change its name at any time, subject to the new name being available. Our staff will be pleased to check free of charge the availability of any proposed new name immediately on your behalf, with the relevant authority. Our experienced staff will also be pleased to give advice on any justification required for names that are regarded as “sensitive” or the suffix allowed to show that the company is limited.
The time scale to change a name depends on the jurisdiction, but normally it is within a few days. Once the change of name is completed you will then receive a “change of name” certificate.
It is only the company name that will change and NOT the incorporation number, it is the incorporation number that identifies all companies and this number will remain unique to the company throughout its life.
We can change the name of your company even if the company was not incorporated through us.
