You can change the registered name of your company by filing with us… It takes the same amount of time as an incorporation, about 3-6 working hours.
If you decide that a name change is going to boost your brand and performance, please take the following steps:
What is a ‘sensitive word’?
Sensitive words are defined by Companies House as words or phrases with the potential to confuse or mislead the public. Such as the use of the words Government, Crown or British in your company name will imply a connection with the UK Government. Words like Police, Bank, Financial fall under the same category. Adjectives like Chartered or Accredited will also need to be reviewed by the Sensitive Business Names Team to make sure that what is being claimed in the company name is true or certifiable. We can obtain approval for you in advance for an additional fee, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What if my name is similar to a competitor?
Your name must be unique. Companies House will review whether your proposed company name too closely resembles another company name on the Registry. For instance, if you like the name Boardwalk Repairs Limited but it’s taken, so you select Boardwalk Repairs UK Limited, it will be flagged by Companies House and rejected.
