If you are planning to complete a business name registration in Toronto, Ontario, there are several important things you should know about this important process.

  • Per the Business Names Act (Ontario), business name registrations are valid for five-year terms and must be renewed in order to ensure that the business name registration remains in good standing.
  • Before selecting a business name, you’ll want to do thorough research into proposed names in order to ensure availability and avoid confusion with other business names.
  • Your business name should be distinctive, unique and distinguished from other businesses that offer similar products and services. Business names should also be easy for others to recognize and read.

There are several situations in which business name registration is not required as follows:

  • Legal names of corporations are registered as corporate names and do not need separate business name registration. If a corporation uses a separate business name other than its full legal corporate name to identify its business, the business/operating/trade name must be registered separately.
  • General partnerships (multiple-person businesses with a common view to profit) which use the legal names of the partners without any additional words added as the partnership name do not need to be registered.
  • Sole proprietorships which use the legal name of the proprietor without any words added do not need to be registered.
