Change of Company Name Service


What is meant by a change of company name?

A change of company name refers to a change in a company’s legal registered name at Companies House. It is a formal procedure which only becomes official once Companies House approves the change and issues a name change certificate called a Certificate of Incorporation on Change of Name.

What is the company name change process?

There are two stages to a company name change. The first part is the decision to submit a name change application to Companies House. This is made by the company’s members passing a special resolution, although it can sometimes come from a decision by the directors.

The second stage is the submission of the name change application to Companies House. Only when Companies House approves the name change, and issues a name change certificate does the change become official.
