Frequently Asked Questions:

How long will it take to alter the name of my company?

Changing a company name on the Companies House registration normally takes 3-4 working days in total. We will send you digital documents to sign through email within 1-2 business days. It will take 1-2 working days for your company name to change with Companies House once you have confirmed that the documents have been signed. On the same day that the company name is changed, we will give you your documents through email.

If I alter the name of my company, will my registration number change?

No. This is going to stay the same.

How can I fix a misspelling in my company's name?

If you merely made a spelling error when registering your business name, you will need to submit a change of business name order to remedy the error.

Can I use the name change service to alter the ‘Limited' element of my company name to ‘plc'?

No. This modification necessitates the use of form RR01 to re-register your private limited company as a plc. Click here for more information.

What information do I need to supply if I wish to use a sensitive word in the name of my new business?

To support your application, you will need to produce supporting proof or a letter of non-objection from the appropriate authority. Please send this documentation to us by email as soon as possible.

We will be needed to order your company name change by post if a sensitive word is included in the new name, and the entire process will take between 5 and 10 working days.

Will a fresh certificate of incorporation and company documentation be sent to me?

No, your original certificate of incorporation will be kept, and a certificate of company name change will be added to it. The memorandum will remain unchanged, as it contains a list of the company's subscribers on the day it was founded.

Through the passage of time, the memorandum becomes a document of historical value in many ways.
