Trading Disclosures – Regulations

The Companies (Registrar, Languages and Trading Disclosures) Regulations 2006 require companies to state their registered name, place of registration, registered office address and number on hard and soft copy correspondence, including on order forms and emails, and on its website. As a practical matter, companies will need to include the information that is currently required to be stated on a company’s business letters/order forms on their websites and on email correspondence. It would be prudent to include standard rubric stating the required information at the end of all emails sent on company business. These requirements also apply to limited liability partnerships.

The Directors and Secretary of any company authorising the appearance of a website not complying with these requirements will be liable to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum of £1,000.
