A company can change its name at any time, subject to the new name being available. Our staff will be pleased to immediately check on your behalf, free of charge, the availability of any proposed new name, via our electronic direct link to Companies House. Our experienced staff will also be pleased to give advice on any justification required for names that are regarded as “sensitive” by the Registrar of Companies.
We can complete the change of name for you in accordance with Section 78 of the Companies Act 2006, normally within a few hours. You will then receive a “change of name” certificate issued by Companies House.
It is only the company name that will change and NOT the incorporation number, it is the incorporation number that Companies House uses to identify all companies on the register, 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.
