Forming a company
Choosing a company name
Start by checking if your desired company name is available by using the search tool above.
Some best practice ideas when choosing a company name are:
Think big - Although your company may currently operate locally, this doesn’t mean your name should be geographically based. Consider what would happen if your business expands.
Be web friendly - Most companies will have an online presence have you checked to see if your web domain is available? If you can match your company name to your website address, this makes it easier for people to find you.
Make it clear - Chose a name that clearly reflects the products or services your company provides. This will make what your company does instantly apparent to people. You may need to consider this when using abbreviations.
