By law there is some details which a limited company must include on the documents and promotional materials is uses in the business. We explain what information about your limited company you must include, and where you should show it.

What information do I need to provide about my company?

The information that you must provide about your company depends on where you’ll display it. Your registered company address and any additional work sites should clearly display a sign showing the company’s name.

Your company might use stationery or promotional materials which are printed or available digitally. For instance, this might include a website, business cards, compliment slips, or social media channels.

Whichever format you use, your promo kit and any stationery must show the name of your company on everything that it uses, as well as:

Where do I need to show this information?

You should show the relevant details about your business pretty much everywhere! As well as being a legal requirement, it’s part of your brand and reassures customers that you are who you say you are.

For instance, your company website must include the place of registration as well as the company registration number. If you only show these on your homepage and someone arrives at your website by finding one of its pages online, they might miss it. It’s why most websites these days have a ‘site wide footer’ at the end of the page, which is the same no matter what page you look at.

It’s also a legal requirement that your website shows your VAT registration number if you have one, along with any professional trade or accreditation bodies your company belongs to.

You should also have a sign which clearly shows your company name at each place your company operates. So, if you have a head office and three branches, each of these must show the appropriate signage.

What about the names of the people in the business?

You don’t have to show the company directors’ names, but if you show one then you must show all of them. The names of each company director are also listed as part of the Companies House online record for your business.
