Can I change the name of an LLP?


We incorporated an LLP in London last month but chose a name out of desperation.We’ve since thought of a much better one so we’d like to change the name of our LLP. Is this possible or do we have to wait for a certain period of time before we can do this?



That’s not a problem at all. You can change the name of your LLP whenever you like, as long as it is approved by the partners and Companies House.

You will have to carry out the same checks and adhere to the same rules as when you chose the original name. All being well, you must notify Companies House by post (form LL NM01) or online via WebFiling or a company formation agent.

It will cost you £8 to change the name. A certificate of name change will be issued by Companies House when it is approved. You can start using the new name as soon as you receive this.
