Is Your Stationery Breaking The Law?

Mar 12, 2011 | Blog, Print

We often get asked what details need to be included on a letterhead. Many clients don’t realise the legal requirement to feature particular information on their corporate literature. Laws came into force a couple of years ago requiring companies and limited liability partnerships to make sure that their legal name was 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 sharpish. Check out our range of lovely stationery.
