Can I use the word 'National' in my company name?


Hi there

I am kickstarting a new publishing company in the south of England, and I would like to use the world “national” in the title. Does Companies House have any odd rule about that sort of thing, or can I use the word in my company name?

Yes, you can include the word ‘National’ in the name of your limited company. You do not need to get permission from Companies House or any other official body because this word was recently removed from the list of ‘sensitive’ words and expressions.
