Business names, Business Law and Ethics

Business Names:

                            If a company has a place of business in Kenya and carries on business under a business name which does not consist of its corporate name without any addition, the company must, within twenty-eight days after commencing business under the business name, submit to the registrar of business names a statement, called the Statement of Particulars, which contains the following particulars-

(a)     the business name;

(b)     the general nature of the business;

(c)     the full address of the principal place of business and the postal address of the company;

(d)     the full address of every other place of business;

(e)     the company's corporate name and registered and principal office, and

(f)      the date of the commencement of business.

Changes in the registered particulars (other than (e) and (f)) must be notified on the appropriate form within twenty-eight days after such change.

If there is a default in registration, the persons in default are liable to a fine and, unless the court gives relief, the rights of the defaulter in relation to the business in question are unenforceable by the defaulter by action: Registration of Business Names Act, ss.10 - 11.
