Change of Company Name
Companies may choose to change their registered company name for a variety of reasons. Section 77 of the Companies Act 2006 sets out the procedure a company must follow in order to change its name. Most companies will change their name by the procedure set out in section 77(1), i.e. by special resolution or by another means as set out in a company’s articles of association.
