Registration of Business Names Act, Cap. 317
An Act to provide for the registration of firms and persons carrying on business under business names and for related matters.
The importance of complying with the statutory requirement to notify the Registrar of any changes in the filed particulars cannot be overstated. In addition to assisting the Registrar to maintain accurate records, the following points are noteworthy:-
1. Persons who purchase businesses which are being conducted under business names should ensure that a Statement of Change or Notice of Cessation of Business is filed as part of that process. Applications by the purchaser of the business to register such notices at a later date may be hindered by the existing registration in the name of the previous owner, unless that previous owner is still available to effect the appropriate registration;
2. It is also important for persons who are partners of a partnership which is being dissolved but who wish to continue to use the existing business name to have the Statement giving notice of the change signed by all the partners before the notice is filed;
3. Changes in the partnership should be filed promptly in order to avoid the problem of not being able to locate the former partners at a later date to sign a statement to give notice of the change especially if they die or leave the jurisdiction.
