Key legal info is needed to the identity of your recruitment firm on your website.

Key legal info is needed to the identity of your recruitment firm on your website.

The Companies Act 2006 is one of the UK’s longest pieces of legislation, at more than 700 pages! So to save you a long read we have summarised some basics for your website.

The Act requires you to provide key information about the identity of your company on your website. This information doesn’t need to be on every page, but it does need to be easily found by users of your site. Lots of the info can be carried in your website footer so it is a pretty easy task. But a word of caution quite a lot of recruitment websites we look at don’t have this info on their website or it has been made hard to find, so check yours without delay.

Here is what you need to provide:

  • Company name

  • Company registered number

  • Place of registration, such as England and Wales

  • Registered office address

  • Your company name, postal address and company email address

  • How to contact your business via non-electronic means

  • Your VAT number, even if the website is not being used for eCommerce transactions

  • The name of any trade bodies or professional associations that the business is part of, including membership or registration details.

We suggest your company number/vat number next to your Copywrite message and the rest on your Contact us, and or your Privacy page.
