Business Name Request and Approval

Registration Services

Securing the right business name is a critical step in starting your business.

If you would like to register a business name for your corporation, a Small Business BC business advisor can help simplify this process by reviewing your name choice with you and filing your business name request on your behalf.

Approvals typically take 2–4 business days by email.
