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.

This subfolder includes:

  • a guidance note to assist customers in the process of choosing a company name (either on incorporation or name change) and the legal restrictions in place on name choice;
  • the procedural documents required to complete the process of changing a company name, including board minutes, shareholder resolutions, letters, notices and minutes of shareholder meetings; and
  • the subsequent forms that will need to be filed with Companies House.

These templates comply with the Companies Act 2006 and the Economic Crime & Corporate Transparency Act 2023.
