    I have a company name I have thought up which im very fond off. I have searched the intellectual property database and no results have been found (No one has registered the trademark apparently.

    However, when I searched companies house I saw that there's another company with the same name, they are not in the same industry as me but I can see that they have been in business for overt 5 years.

    Can I still register the name for my company despite another business having it?

    No you can't. I wonder how 'good' your domain name can be if it's used by 2 companies with non-related services.
