On the Thursday before Christmas a European law, the First Company Law Amendment Directive, was brought into UK Law by the The Companies (Registrar, Languages and Trading Disclosures) Regulations 2006 - http://www.opsi.gov.uk/si/si2006/uksi_20063429_en.pdf Source: www.dti.gov.uk/files/file36201.doc Yet another day stolen from me by the Government as I try and go round all my websites (on which previous legislation did not require the above) and add my company number and registered office to them. I was not previously hiding my company's identity the required information was easily found via a whois (or even a Google) search. One problem I have with this new legislation is the word "legibly" . It is not down to me how a client's web-browser or email software renders my company information. eg. I use X-Organisation email headers - some mail clients give that huge prominence, others don't reveal it until a user opts to "view details" or "view source". Would including my legally required details in a Flash or Quicktime movie or some other proprietary format make them less legible than their plain text equivalents?
