Choosing your company name

[icon] What you need to know. What you need to know

  • You need to choose a company name when you form a company.   
  • The name can not be identical or almost identical to another incorporated company's name.
  • Always search the Companies Register to see if the name you have in mind is available.
  • Registration of a company name provides limited name protection – that is, it will prevent another company being incorporated under an identical or almost identical name.
