Effective email signatures and legal compliance

email signatures and legal compliance

In the UK we are legally required to include certain information in every email that we send, if the email is being sent by a UK Company. Not everyone includes all of the information in their email signature and, in theory at least, you can be fined for not including this information.

What do I have to include for email signatures and legal compliance?

The 1985 Companies Act requires that all email sent by Private Limited Companies, Public Limited Companies and Limited Liability Partnerships include the following in order to be legally compliant.

  • Your Company name
  • Your Company registration number
  • Your place of registration (e.g. Scotland or England & Wales)
  • Your registered office address – This may be different to the office that you trade from
