Renaming your business

Your businesses name is the most identifiable front of your business therefore it is very important that you have a strong and memorable name. Although most business names are adaptable if your business has changed or expanded you may wish to change the business name completely but what does this involve?

Firstly, you must choose your new business name, this is not always an easy task with so many businesses out there you want to use something brand new, memorable and a name that is adaptable so you won’t need to change it again. We always advise that you do a trade mark search before changing your name.

You will also have to inform all of the appropriate organisations such as HMRC Revenue and customs. You will also need to update all of your suppliers and customers. Lastly you will need to re-brand – chances are all of your website, logos and flyers will need to be re-branded.
