On the 1st October2008 several more sections of the Companies Act 2006 came into force. These included sections 82 to 85 that relate to trading disclosures and this article discusses some of the changes.
The main change as far as websites and emails is concerned is that company details must be disclosed on documents in electronic form and websites. A company must now display it’s name, registered number, place of registration and registered office address on all business letters (including emails), order forms and all websites.
As has been the case for many years the company must also display its registered name and the registered office – however since 1st October 2008 this no longer applies to dormant companies. You must also display the company name at any place where the company carries on its business (but if this is the directors home address this is no longer a requirement).
You should also note that the same information should be included on all emails sent by the company, this is probably best done by including them in a standard signature block that everyone in the company uses when they send emails.
