Can You Change Your Company Name?

Change of Company Name Procedure

An Irish Limited company can change its name by following the four steps below. It is a straightforward process if you use the services of Incorporate Ireland and the company can have a new name in 2-3 days.

1. Shareholders pass Special Resolution

The shareholders, either by notifying the company or by passing a Special Resolution at a Meeting, notify the Directors of the company to change its name. A Special Resolution is a resolution passed by not less than 75% of shareholders based on voting rights.

2. Directors amend Constitution

The directors change the Constitution to take account of the new name. The directors will want to ensure themselves that the name is available and they can do this using our Free Company Name Check tool. They may also want to Reserve the Company Name before filing the documentation so that nobody else can take the name.

3. Directors notify CRO

Using a Form G1Q, the directors notify the CRO of the Special Resolution to change the name within 15 days of it being passed by the members. The altered Constitution must be provided to the CRO upon submission of the Form G1Q Signature Page.

4. CRO update Registrar and Directors notify stakeholders

The CRO confirm acceptance of the Form G1Q and check if the documents are in order. Usually within 2-3 days, the CRO update the Registrar to reflect the change in company name and issue the company with a Certificate of Change of Name. The directors should then order a Company Seal and notify the stakeholders (banks, suppliers, customers, Revenue Commissioners, etc.)
