Is your stationery breaking the law?

UK laws require companies and limited liability partnerships to make sure that their legal name is stated in legible lettering on all letters, order forms, invoices receipts, websites and emails. Check now. Are you complying with the law?

It doesn’€™t stop there. You’€™re also breaking the law if your letterheads don’€™t have the following printed on them:

  • Your place of registration (ie. England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland)
  • Your company registration number
  • Your registered office address

It’€™s not really in our interest for our customers to be in jail, so please check you’€™re not a Larry Law-breaker. If you are, we won’€™t tell —€” just stop using your old news letterheads and get some new ones printed ASAP.
