Checking the availability of your company name

Our system will search the companies house register for existing names that are the same or too similar to any name that you enter. If your name is not available to register, you can try a different name or try one of our suggested alternatives.

Enter a Company Name to Check Availability


Companies limited by guarantee are very similar to charities. Both are not-for-profit companies and must use their earnings for defined objectives or aims.

Duport can use our experience in forming not-for-profit organisations to help you through the registration process and offer valuable advice and information about setting out your company's aims.

process time

Formation times are kept to a minimum, though often require telephone communication between yourselves and Duport which can delay the process.

important notes

in all not-for-profit companies:

  • you must provide the objects (aims) of your organisation (our team can help with this, but first look at our examples)
  • you must state what will be done with any excess earnings
  • you must have a minimum of 1 trustee (directors)
  • you must have a registered office in the UK (service available)

Please wait for confirmation of your company number before ordering company stationary or otherwise assuming ownership of the company name.
