Changing Company's Name

At IBCCS TAX we are experienced international tax planning advisers offering legal

Changing Company's Name

Following registration, a company may change its name provided that the proposed name is not too similar to the name of an already existing business entity or misleading or undesirable.

Before applying for a name, a search of the proposed name must be conducted.

In the case where your proposed company name is similar to the name of an already existing business entity, the proposed name can be examined only if together with your application for approval of the proposed name, you also submit relevant consent from the existing registered business entity to use the said name.

A change of a company’s name is often used when a shelf company is bought.
