information you must display

Information if you  are registered under company and law

All charitable organisations registered under company and law in England and Wales must publicise their charitable status, supplying information on all written material how much info is dependent on the item in question. What needs to be published where is laid out below.

When producing written material specifically for fundraising purposes, the words ‘Registered ’ must appear as part of the information.

All stationery must show the following information:

  1. The full company name (e.g. “The  Trust”)…If in the future, your organisation carried on its business in a name other than its registered name (e.g. other than “The Trust”), then the corporate name, registered at Companies House, must continue to be shown in addition to the new ‘trading’ name.
  2. The place of (i.e. “Registered in England and Wales”)

  3. The company number (i.e. “1212121”).

  4. The address of its Registered Office …where only one address appears it is assumed to be the registered office. However, where two or more addresses appear one must be clearly annotated “registered office”.

  5. The words “Registered ” (the number may be quoted if you want and its commonly expected to do so).

  6. If your organisation has been granted an exemption from the use of the word “Limited” in its name there must be a statement indicating that it is a limited company.

  7. The names of all or none ( so if you dont put them all its best to put none) of the directors should be included.

The full company name (item 1 above) must appear on all:

  • business letters
  • order forms
  • notices and other official publications
  • websites, social media
  • bills of exchange
  • promissory notes
  • endorsements
