You can change the name of your limited company at any time after incorporation. Quality Formations provides a professional service to change your company name on your behalf. This can usually be done within 3 working days, subject to Companies House workload.
We will prepare and file the NM01 form at Companies House, and also provide all related documents such as a resolution, minutes and certificate of name change.
To ensure we fulfil our obligations regarding the current Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations and Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements, we are required to obtain proof of ID and proof of address from any person who purchases this service.
As part of the order fulfilment process, we will request this information, and the service will not be delivered until we receive it. For further information on ID requirements please click here.
It usually takes around 3-4 working days in total to change a company name on the Companies House register. We will send you digital documents to sign within 1-2 working days, by email. Once you have signed and sent them back via email or post, it will take 1-2 working days for your company name to change with Companies House.
No. This will remain the same.
If you simply made a spelling mistake when you registered your company name, you will be required to process a change of company name order to correct the mistake.
No. This change requires you to re-register your private limited company to a plc using form RR01. For further reading click here.
You will need to provide supporting evidence or a letter of non-objection from the relevant authority to support your application. Please forward this documentation to us by email at your earliest convenience.
When a sensitive word is included in the new company name, we will be required to order your company name change by post, and the whole process will take between 5 to 10 working days.
No. Your original certificate of incorporation will remain intact and will be supplemented with a certificate of company name change. The memorandum will not change, as this lists the subscribers to the company on the day it was formed.
In many respects, the memorandum becomes a document of historical significance, through the passage of time.
