Rules in Alphabetic Filing Part 7

By | November 3, 2017

In the previous post we have learned how to file names with abbreviations. In this post, we are going to learn how to file business names.

Rule 7

A business name is filed as written unless it is the name of an individual, on that case it should be transposed. Consider the following examples:

Top One Supermarket
Prime Choice Chemical Co.
Katrina Co Boutique

They are filed by unit as:

Co Katrina Boutique
Prime Choice Chemical Company
Top One Supermarket

EXCEPTION: When a firm named for an individual is so well-known that to transpose it would cause confusion, it is filed as written.

Examples:

Jose Rizal’s Aklatan
Vicky Belo Skincare

Now, try these following exercise:
