Why Register A Business Name

Individuals who wish to trade under a name not their own true name, must register the name that they wish to trade with. This is so that the identities of the people trading under a name cannot be hidden. This legislation comes under the Registration of Business Names Act 1963.

Important Considerations:

  • The registration of a business name does not protect the name from being used by someone else
  • The name is not Registered until fully approved by the Companies Registration Office
  • Only Residents in the Republic of Ireland can register business names as Sole Traders. If you are not a Resident of the Republic of Ireland you will need to submit a letter of business permission form the Department of Justice and a Stamp 4
