How to search for a Business Name

Searching for a business name

You can find details of all business names registered in Tonga.

1. Standard entity search

Click on Register Search on the ‘Register Services’ tab just above.  This will open a screen that allows you to search the business names, companies, business licence registries.

Enter the name of the entity you seek, and select the applicable registry in the drop-down box.  In this case it would be “Business Names.”  The entity name you enter does not have to be an exact match with the registry records, and the system will also search on past names.  You may also enter the business name registration number if you know it.

A list of possible matches will be displayed on screen and you can click on any one of these results to view the details of that business name.

Click on the SEARCH >> button to display the complete search results for your search criteria.

2. Advanced Search

There are other search criteria you can use to undertake more sophisticated searches.  Once you are on the search page, click on Advanced search.

Now you can customise your search in several ways:
