Hello

I've thought of a name for my salon, and I want to register it i.e. protect it so that only I can use that business name. Does anyone know how I go about doing this? I dont want to register as a company with companies house as I am a sole trader, I just want to register/protect my business name

Can anyone advise? Internet searches have proved fruitless so far

thanks

Unless you copyright something then it's not protected, even names. Companies registered with CH normally trade under a different name as most are already taken.
Part of the problem is someone else can use your name even if protected unless you are prepared to sue which is a costly business. Take a look at the topics on here regarding fake products, that should tell you something.
