Changed name of business

I have changed my business name. Can I simply use the new name on my tax return? Do I need to do anything on the tax return for the old business name I used on previous tax returns?

It asks "have you changed the name or business type in the last 12 months?". Just put a cross in the box and use the new name.

As an agent I don't generally worry about it as I usually show the business name as being the name of the individual whose return it is.
