There are situations throughout the life of a business that lead a company to change its name:

  • The business may be sold to new owners;
  • The business becomes insolvent;
  • There is a need for new branding and marketing; or
  • The business will undergo internal restructuring.
The process of changing a company name is generally simple, yet you need to be confident that the change will be long lasting given the not insignificant ASIC fees incurred for making the change.
