Can the availability of a name be consulted before applying for it?


Yes. There is the possibility of previously consulting whether a name is available or not before applying for the corresponding certification.

A simple note on names has a purely informative nature, and merely states if the name is registered or not.

The content of said query does not condition or prejudice the later classification of the Central Companies Register upon issue, if applicable, of the corresponding certification.

La consulta previa de denominación podrá efectuarse directamente en la sede del Registro a través de un formulario impreso, por correo ordinario mediante el envío de una solicitud o una carta o por medios telemáticos a través de la página web del Registro Mercantil Central.
