How to pick a company name

To avoid having your name rejected by Companies House, here are some general guidelines that you should follow at all times. Make sure that your business name is:

  • Unique

    Unique

    You can’t have the same name as another company that’s already registered. You need to pick a completely unique name — you cannot simply add in a special character or slightly change the punctuation.

  • Non-offensive

    Non‑offensive

    It’s common sense to avoid using an offensive term as your company name. However, just make sure to check that your proposed name doesn’t have any offensive connotations.

  • Non-sensitive

    Non‑sensitive

    ’Sensitive words’ might suggest that your company is associated with a governmental or local authority. Companies House may therefore have an issue with you using these terms, meaning your registration process might be delayed.

  • Your company is good to go

Q&A

  • What is company incorporation?

    Incorporation is when your business is legally brought into existence as a company. Once your business is incorporated into a company, the assets and cash flow of your business are separated from your income as the business owner.

  • How do I check if a business name is available?

    Use our free company name checker to verify your company name is available. There are over 4 million registered companies in the Companies House database, and we'll make sure that you have the unique one.

  • How do I register a company name?

    When you incorporate your company on Companies House, you register your company name as well. Before you register your company, you will have to prepare a company name. Private limited company names have to be unique. Do this by checking if the company name you want is available by using the name availability tool on Companies House. Also, check with the UK Intellectual Property Office that your chosen company name does not clash with an existing trademarked name. No matter how unique your company name is, it will usually end with either ‘Limited’ or ‘Ltd’. If your company was registered in Wales, you can include the Welsh equivalents ‘Cyfyngedig’ and ‘Cyf’ instead.

  • Can two UK companies have the same registered name?

    No, it's impossible. The Companies House set up requirements regarding what names the companies should have. Business names must be unique. Our free company name tool will check if the company name you chose is taken. So you won't waste your time sending applications twice.
