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.
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.
