5.1.12. Applicant name: Business names and 'trading as'

Date Published

Business names (e.g. ‘John’s Plumbing’ and ‘trading as’) cannot be used as the individual name because they are not persons. ​​​​​​​

The application may have a name of an individual applicant but include a trading style or business name as well (e.g. 'Joe Dover t/as Joe’s Plumbing'), but the trading style and business name will not be entered onto the database.
