I haven't worked for 5 years and would like to set up as a so,e trader with a small online business. I've looked on companies house register and the business name I have in mind doesn't appear there, nor on the link to sole traders. But there's a hairdresser and a bakery, both using the name, in two small towns in the UK. I don't want to start up and run into issues, but at the same time I'd really like to use the name I have in mind. Can I?
