1. Does this rule change include a change to the society name?
If yes, what is the proposed society name?
The society’s name must end with the word ‘Incorporated’. The proposed name cannot be identical or deceptively similar to
that of another body corporate (such as a company or another incorporated society). If the other organisation gives its
consent to use the name, attach their written consent to this certificate as a supporting document.
We have checked that the proposed new name of the society is available.
Note — You can check that the name you’ve chosen is available to use by using the search options provided by the
following Companies Office websites.
