Change of Business Name:
Section 17(4) of the Registration of Business Names Act provides that if -
(a) any company is, through inadvertence or otherwise, registered under a business name under which registration under the Act ought to have been refused; or
(b) any change of ownership of a business occurs as a result of which a company carrying on a business under a business name which, on an application for registration under the Act, ought to have been refused, the registrar shall, by notice in writing, require the company to change such business name within a time specified in the notice.
The registrar is empowered to cancel the registered business name if the company fails to change it after he directed it to do so.
