Application for administrative restoration to the Register
Alternative name
Alternative name
If the alternative name cannot be
registered, the Registrar shall restore
the company as if its company
number was also its name. The
company then has 14 days after the
date of restoration to change its
name by resolution of the directors.
The company must give notice to the
Registrar of the change, and sections
80 and 81 apply as regards the
registration and effect of the change.
It is an offence under section
1033(6) of the Companies Act 2006
if the company name is not changed
within 14 days of the company being
restored with the company number
as its name.
If at the date of restoration the company could not be registered under its
former name without contravening section 66 of the Companies Act 2006 (name
not to be the same as another in the Registrar’s index of company names),
it must be restored to the Register under another name specified. This name
is subject to the provisions of section 54 and 55 of the Companies Act 2006
(sensitive words and expressions), section 80 (change of name: registration
and issue of new certificate of incorporation), and section 81 (change of name:
effect) as if the application to register were a notice of change of name.
Please enter an alternative name if the former name is unavailable. Please check
