Stationery and emails
We advise that all emails contain the company’s full name and its place of registration, company number and registered office as per the New Companies Act November 2006.
Clients should ensure that their websites, business letters, order forms etc contain the company’s full name and its place of registration, company number and registered office.These would normally be included anyway but now those who don’t will now be liable to a fine. Non-disclosure of the company’s name can incur a maximum fine of £5,000.
This may well also apply to emails, which can be interpreted as a “business letter”. Therefore best advice is to ensure that all emails sent contain these details in the standard rubric at the end.
Clients should always be aware they are managing their own independent limited company and should be seen to be acting independently of their company’s client/end client, especially from an IR35 viewpoint! Best not to use clients email rubrics, compliments slips, letterheads etc
