Need to update your website?

As of April 1, you need to state the following details on your website:

  1. The name of the company and the company’s legal form;
  2. the place of registration of the company, the number with which it is registered and the address of its registered office;
  3. in the case of a company exempt from the obligation to use the word “limited” or “teoranta” as part of its name, the fact that it is a limited company;
  4. in the case of a company which is being wound up, the fact that it is being wound up; and that:
  5. if there is reference to the share capital of the company on any letters or order forms, the reference shall be to the paid-up share capital.

You may need to state this information in your emails too, but as is typical with Irish legislation, I’m not entirely sure if that’s the case. The ODCE doesn’t seem to either, or surely they would have been clearer than “company letters and order forms” in their information notice?

It’s definitely a good idea to require companies to put this information on their websites, but ffs ODCE, piss or get off the pot: what, if any, emails does this info need to go into?

  1. I’m taking it as meaning email as well as the pdf states in the appendicies

    “‘letters and order forms’ means letters and order forms in paper form or in any other medium.”
