You may need to authorize the change of company name at a shareholders‘ meeting. The seal used to bind the corporation by the signature of the director will need to be changed along with the corporation’s name to match the new name of the corporation. You may need to apply for a name reservation in the same manner as when the corporation was originally formed. Registration of the change in the name of the corporation must be made with the Department of Commerce (DBD) within 14 days of the date the change is approved by the shareholders. A new certificate of incorporation, bearing the new name of the company, will be issued. The corporation will continue to operate as the same legal entity, but the new official corporate name must be used.
