A Notice of Change of Name is a letter used to inform someone that a person has changed their name. Individuals can choose to change their name as a result of marriage or change in religion, child adoption, career change, or individual choice. Hence, they should inform their various contacts about the name change.

Many organizations, including health insurance companies, banks, utilities, and various businesses, require a formal notice of a name change for the update of their official records. For example, when an individual changes their name, they must notify their healthcare providers, banks, customers, or other institutions about this change.

Note that this letter is adaptable for multiple uses, allowing individuals to inform all relevant parties or organizations, enabling them individuals to efficiently update their contacts in various aspects of life, such as work, banking, healthcare providers, and other areas, ensuring a smooth transition.

This letter outlines the old name of the party sending this letter, the new name of the party sending the letter, and the name and particulars of the recipient of the letter.

How to use this document

A company or organization that has changed its corporate name can use this letter to apply to the Corporate Affairs Commission for a change of name. Also, individuals or organizations can use this letter to notify their account managers, newspaper publishers, clients, customers, friends, business partners, or other interested parties about the name change, as this will help these parties to alter the records to reflect the new name.

This document can be sent as a letter or an email. If it will be sent as a letter, after completing the document, it should be printed and signed by the sender. If the party sending the letter is a registered organization (for example, company, business name, incorporated trustees, etc.), an authorized representative of the organization should sign the document. The representative here should be a person in a position of authority (for example, a director, managing partner, director, or general manager).

If the document will be sent as an email, the sender should complete the form and forward it to the recipient's email address. After signing the document, it should be sent to the recipient, and the sender should keep a copy for record purposes.
