It may be old news but for a site launched early in 2007 dedicated to yourcoachingbiz, I have to point out the changes in the UK law that came into effect on 1 January relating to electronic communications. Every UK company must now list the following on its website, business emails and order forms:
- Company registration number
- Place of registration
- Registered office address
This change brings the UK law on e communications into line with that relating to disclosures for hard copy documents. It also brings UK law (more or less) into line with the E-commerce Regulations.
What happens if you fail to comply? You will be in breach of the Companies Act and at risk of a fine.
Note that this law only applies to business that are set up as companies.
