Company names


The name of a company must end with the word “Limited”.

A company name will not be entered on the register –

  • that is identical or almost identical to the name of another company; or
  • the use of which would contravene any enactment in relation to the use of names; or
  • that contravenes regulations made under the Companies Act in relation to company names; or
  • that the Registrar considers to be offensive.


If an application for incorporation of a company specifies a name that does not meet the requirements of the Act, the Registrar will incorporate the company with a name in the form “Company number x Limited”, where “x” is a unique number assigned to the company by the Registrar for this purpose.
