Name Reservation Service


If you want to reserve a name for future use and prevent anyone else from using that name then this service is designed for you.

UKplc Company Registrations will act as Corporate Director and Shareholder on your behalf, appoint a personal Nominee Director in accordance with the Companies Act 2006 and attend to all necessary Companies House filing requirements. (For plcs only, which still require a secretary, we will also act as a Secretary).

In forming a non-trading company we register the name of the business on the Companies House database in the same way as a trading entity and, by doing so we ensure that no-one else can trade under that company name. This act of protecting a name is one of the most common reasons for establishing a dormant company.

Should you ever wish to take over the running of the company or upgrade to a trading company simply pay a small upgrade fee, appoint your own officers and shareholders, change the registered office address and your business is ready for trading!

Who is it for

Anyone wishing to protect a company name, hold an asset or intellectual property.

Anyone in the process of setting up a company without being ready to trade or does not want their details to appear on the public register at Companies House for the time being.


  • Protect a Name
  • Get everything ready to setup a company without public disclosure
