Updating European Company’s Particulars

Changing Name

Following registration, a European company may change its name provided that the proposed name is not too similar to the name of an already existing business entity or is misleading or undesirable. For more details, please refer to submission of the name approval section regarding the registration of an application for change of name to the Registrar of Companies.

Registering a resolution for change of name

Provided that the proposed name has been approved, the resolution for change of name must be submitted within fifteen (15) days from the date of the resolution, either by hand/post. The resolution must be accompanied by the fee of forty euros (€40). An additional fee of twenty euros (€20) if the accelerated procedure is required must be paid.

The fees are payable in cash, by cheque, via an account maintained with the Department of Registrar of Companies or by bank transfer.

You are advised to refer to the main criteria of review and most common reasons for rejection, so as to acquire a better understanding of what is required and to facilitate the process further.

Provided that the Registrar of Companies is satisfied that all, relevant to the circumstances, legal requirements have been met he will proceed with, registering the change of name, updating the companies register, issuing the certificate of change of name and making the relevant publication in the government’s gazette.

In the event that the company requires proof of the change made in the companies register, it may request to obtain certified copies of the change.
