Cessation of business name
There comes a point where as the business proprietor you will have to stop to carry-on business under the Business name, either to upgrade it to a company or completely cease the business. You will have to make an application to the Registrar to have the Business name ceased under the register of Business names.
In cases where you want to upgrade to a company, using the same name, there shall be no need to re-reserve the name; rather you will have to complete an application for incorporation of a company using the name under the Business name. You will have to complete the removal form and attach the original Certificate of Registration previously issued or an affidavit where the original certificate cannot be located.
