Can I start a new company with a corporate name that has been dissolved?


Heya, I’m keen to set up a new company using the name of an old one that I know has officially dissolved. Do you know whether there are actually rules about this, or if it is okay in the eyes of the law for me to proceed with?



Yes, you can register a new limited company with the name of a dissolved company but do be sure to carry out some research on the dissolved company beforehand. This will enable you determine what kind of reputation is associated with the dissolved company and whether it has any outstanding debts that could cause problems for you.
