Essential Legal Stuff for your Website

Did you know that all businesses in the UK have to display:

On your website and on emails:

  • the company name (if this is different from the trading name then the difference should be made clear)
  • the registered office address of the company
  • the registration number and country of registration

The details you must make available on your website are:

  • an email address where the company can be contacted (this is not needed on emails from the company)
  • membership of any trade or professional association including the registration number
  • the VAT number if VAT registered.

If you “collect data” you will also need a Privacy Policy saying what you will use the data for and how it will be stored.
