If you wish to use any of the following words or titles in a limited company name, Companies House will ask you to provide them with a letter of authorisation from us before registering your company name.

The words and titles are:

  • Chiropractic

  • Chiropractor

  • Chiropractitioner

  • Chiropractic practitioner

  • Chiropractic physician

Note that this requirement only extends to limited companies (Ltd) – there is no requirement for a letter of authorisation if you use any other type of corporate structure such as a sole trader or partnership.

If you need a letter of authorisation, please complete the form below. 

Please note:

We are unable to send letters directly to Company House.

You should allow five working days for us to process your request.

If there is some missing information from your form it may take longer to be issued with a letter.
