Frequently Asked Questions

What is a trade name?

A trade name is the official name under which a company chooses to do business. A trade name does not need to include additional words or legal phrases (e.g., Incorporated, Investments, PLC etc.). For example, a company’s trade name is Numeri, but their legal business name is Numeri Incorporated. A business can opt to have their business name and trade name be the same.

Is a trade name the same as a trademark?

A trade name and a trademark are distinctly different. A trade name is the official name under which a company chooses to do business. On the other hand, a trademark offers companies legal protection for a particular brand, which may be associated with a trade name.

Is it necessary to register a trade name?

It is necessary because this will offer protection to your trade name. Once you register the name, no one can then use that name. Also companies are now required to register trade name by the Companies and Other Business Entities Act Chapter (24:32).

Do you offer trademark registration?

No we don’t offer this service.

What do I receive when I register a trade name?

You will receive a certificate of assumed name.

How long does it take to register a trade name?

Normally take 9-12 working days depending on the companies registry workload it might take longer.

You will need to provide:

  1. Company’s original name.
  2. Company number.
  3. Proposed trade name.
