What is a limited company is legally obliged to display on their website?


18th November 2013

EU regulations stipulate that all limited companies is obliged to have certain information on all communicative material.

This information should be located on a readily accessible webpage, within the website. It is common practice to include this information in a footer, that appears on the bottom of every webpage within the website.

Since 2007, the regulations that a limited company must display on it's website is as follows;

  1. The name and legal form of the company
  2. The place of registration of the company, and its registration number, (for example; Ireland, Number 000000)
  3. the address of the company's registered office; (address of the company)
  4. in the case of a company exempt from the obligation to use the word 'limited' (ltd) or 'teoranta' (tta) as part of its name, the fact that it is a limited company

And additionally;

  1. where the company is being wound up, the fact that it is being wound up
  2. where reference is made in the letter or order form to the company's share capital, the reference shall be to the paid-up share capital.

The above requirements also apply to all emails sent from a limited company.

These requirements do not apply to an unlimited company (or a business).
