It normally takes 1 week to get the Certificate of Change of Name after submission of relevant application documents to ACRA.

6. Effective Date of Change of Name
  Please note that the change of a company name takes effect from the date of issue of Certificate of Change of Name, instead of the passing of the resolution changing the name.

After we complete the whole process, the following materials will be returned to you:
(1) Certificate of Change of Name
