Specifically, registration of a business name is required if:

  1. An individual uses a business name which differs in any way from his/her true surname. It makes no difference whether the individuals first name or initials are added. So registration is required if, for example, Mr. John Murphy traded as Murphy Builders.
  2. A firm uses a business name which differs in any way from the true names of all partners
  3. A company uses a business name which differs in any way from its full corporate name.
