What Website Information is required for UK companies?

Website Information - Legal ComplianceIf your business is a private or public limited company or a Limited Liability Partnership, the Companies Act 1985 requires that the following website information is displayed in legible characters:

  • Your company registration number
  • Your place of registration (e.g. Scotland or England & Wales)
  • Your registered office address

Failure to comply with these requirements puts your company at risk of a fine. These duties were clarified on 1 January 2007, as a result of an amendment that was made to the Companies Act to comply with a European Directive.

VAT Registration

If you sell from your website and charge VAT you also need to display your VAT Registration number on your website. Typically the VAT Number is displayed along with the contact information and on any invoice.

Where do I need to include the Website Information?

The legislation does not state where on your website the information needs to be displayed, just that it must be ‘…. displayed in legible characters.’

Some sites include the required Website Information in the footer of every page, others will display it in the About or Contact Us sections of the site. The choice of location is up to you, its just needs to be easy for visitors to find the required Website Information.

What should I do if the Website Information is missing?

If the website is a personal Blog and isn’t run by a company there is no requirement for the owner to provide any contact Website Information on the site.

If however you are buying direct from a website you want to be sure that you know who you are dealing with and that they are happy to provide contact details. For UK companies you can always go to the Companies House website and check the Company Registration Number, provided as part of the Website Information, matches the company name and registered office address.

You should now know what the UK legal requirements are for Website Information and how to check it.
