Business or Trading Name Registration

Companies are required to register its business name, if the company wants to trade under a different name other than its registered company name, any name that is not the primary company name has to be registered.

The business name registration doesn’t grant a legal entity status, but it grants a legal usage and identity to make the use of the business name more transparent. In addition, it does not confer the sole right to use the name to the holder.

Banks and various public institutions require companies utilising a business names to provide evidence that the name has been registered (Certificate of Business Name registration). As appropriate, stationery should include the company’s name.

Bradán Accountants can assist you in business name registration and guide you on how to comply with the Registration of Business Names Act.

Change of Company Name

Any company can change its name and the change of a company’s name can be due to several factors such as change of ownership, merger, acquisitions, change in operations etc.

When a company decides to change its name, Bradán Accountants can assist and provide guidance in checking the availability of proposed business names. After an appropriate name has been selected, we prepare a constitution and company secretarial papers under the proposed business name and file an application for name change with the CRO.

Currently, it takes around two weeks for the CRO to register a change in a company’s name following submission.
