You can change your company name at any time after incorporation, as long as it adheres to all company name rules and regulations.
The change of company name can be authorised in one of two ways:
- By special resolution of the members
- By resolution of the board of directors
- Upon passing a resolution, a change of name application and a copy of the resolution must be filed at Companies House.
Most applications are approved and updated on the public register of companies within 48 hours of submission. Companies House will notify you by email when the name has been approved.
You will be issued with a digital ‘Certificate of Incorporation on Change of Name’ as confirmation.
You can start using the new name as soon as you receive this document.
