What is a company name?

A name is an identification given to a class or category of things or a single item or unique. Similarly, a company has its name. For the growth of the company and brand promotion, a unique identity of the company plays a tremendous role which can ultimately make or break a company. The primary purpose is to let people know more about the company. The name of the organisation should be related to the goods or services they provide.

After a company is incorporated, the company can change its name anytime. The company is managed by Company law & so the process for a name change is provided by Companies Act, 2013. The method includes conducting meetings of Board & members for respective consent, which will be  followed by the selection of name & Central Government’s approval for new name. Once the name is updated, New Certificate of Incorporation will be issued by ROC. The difference in the name of the company does not affect the existence of the company; also, the assets & liabilities remain unaffected.
