Company Name Reservation
Have you thought of an amazing name for your new business?
If you would like to secure the name we can assist you.
A company’s name contains two elements:
- a distinctive element (e.g. a surname or other unique term)
- a descriptive element (e.g. manufacturing, consulting, trading, etc)
CIPC needs 4(four) names listed in order of preference.
CIPC will review your proposed names to determine which one can be assigned to you once they have been compared to the names in their database.
The decision will be based on several criteria, e.g. is it so similar to the trade-mark, official name or trade-name of another company that both names appear to be the same business? Or is it so similar that it appears to be related to another business?
