Company Name Change

company name change

Name changes can be submitted electronically.
Change of name accepted in 3 hours!

A change of name occurs when a company decides to adopt a name which is different from its current registered name. For example, a company changing its name from J Smith Limited to John Smith Limited.

A change of name does not occur when a company decides to change its company formation status, such as from a public company to a private limited company. For example, J Smith Limited to J Smith PLC. This type of change is called re-registration and should not be confused with a standard change of name.

Nor is it a change of name if a company carries on business under a name that is not its registered name. However, the company must include its registered name on documents, websites and signs at its premises.

NB. If your new company name requires supporting documentation to be filed with the name change (eg. sensitive words) we will need to submit paperwork forms. In this case the time will be: Standard (5-10 working days) and Same day (24 hours once Companies House receives the documents)
