Sensitive and Prescribed Words
Part of starting your own company obviously involves choosing a company name. What you might not know is in doing so you have to consider what is known as “sensitive words” - these are words and phrases which are prescribed in use by Companies House in order to prevent companies from misleading the public (intentionally or not).
These words include things like “solicitor”, “dentist”, “authority”, “chamber”, “charity”, “commission” etc. These words can be used, as long as the reason for doing so is genuine or at least fulfils the legal criteria.
In most cases this simply involves seeking support from the relevant body or special permission from the secretary of state.
