Change of Name Certificate


Certificate of Company Name Change

When a company has successfully undergone a change of name, it will be issued with a change of name certificate. This certificate issued by Companies House, states that the new name has been adopted and serves as the official recognition that the request was in order and has been approved.

The effect of the certificate of company name change is limited to the following extent. Changing a company's name does not extinguish any liabilities, debts, adverse judgments or any transactions which the business have entered in to prior to the event.

In the normal course of their business, the company will want to notify its suppliers, customers and the tax authorities of its new name (possible enclosing copies of the change of name certificate) so that invoicing, purchasing and its general recognition with the business community can continue without undue confusion.

Company Number does not Change

The company number of an entity which takes on a different name will not change, neither will the incorporation date, or any other statutory details relating to the directors, secretaries, shareholders or its constitution.

In deciding a new name for the company, the directors are bound by the same regulations which govern acceptable names at the time of setting up a UK limited company.
