I would like to inquire about the possibility of changing a registered business name to a limited liability company. For instance, Chikuk Business Solutions to Chikuk Business Solutions Ltd

Hello Akinsanya, It is possible. However, the process is a bit tedious as you need to ensure that you have been filing your annual returns and necessary documents for the registered business name. If you haven't, it would mean more financial implication adding up the late filing penalties. If your filings are up to date, you would then notify CAC of the cessation of the registered business name, before registering a company with the same name. I hope this helps.
