Definition of Company Name

In accordance with the work A Dictionary of Law, this is a description of Company Name : The title of a registered company, as stated in its *memorandum of association and in the companies register. The names with which companies can be registered are restricted (See also business name). The name must appear clearly in full outside the *registered office and other business premises, upon the company seal, and upon certain documents issuing from the company, including notepaper and invoices.
