Company Stationery and Websites

If you are setting up in business and designing your stationery and website please be aware that there are some legal requirements surrounding what needs to be included.

 

Headed Stationery

As required by legislation the following should be included on a company’s headed paper:

  • Company name plus Limited, Ltd, Teoranta, Teo, plc as appropriate
  • Names of directors (including any former names)
  • Nationality of directors if not Irish
  • Business name (if different from company name)
  • Country of registration
  • Registered number
  • Address of registered office

 

Websites

 

There are a number of regulations concerned with information to be included on a company’s website.  Even for the most basic websites, limited companies must contain a privacy policy as well as the following:

  • Company name plus Limited, Ltd, Teoranta, Teo, plc as appropriate
  • Country of registration
  • Registered number
  • Address of the registered office
  • If your company is being wound up, the fact that it is being wound up
  • Any reference to share capital must be to the paid-up share capital

The above also applies to email communications.

If your website involves any online trade, then ensure that your web developer is up to speed on the relevant e-commerce and distance selling regulations.

Finally, remember to wait until your limited company or your business name has been registered before finalising the design of your headed stationery and website.
