A Company must state its name (as it appears in its Memorandum of Association) in certain places and on its business stationery (including e-mails and websites).
Every Company must paint or affix its name on the outside of every office or place in which its business is carried on.
Company name must be shown on:
- Business letters
- Notices and official publications.
- Bills of exchange, promissory notes, endorsements, cheques and orders for money or goods purporting to be signed by, or on behalf of, the Company.
- All its bills of parcels, invoices, receipts and letters of credit.
On all business letters, websites,invoices and order forms the company must also show:
- Place of registration.
- Its registered number.
- Address of registered office.
- VAT number.It is also good practice to include this information on email footers
A Company does not have to state the directors’ names on its business letters, but if it does then all names must be shown.
