E-commerce Regulations

Last modified: 3/2010

Since 21 August 2002, the UK's E-commerce Regulations state that certain information relating to a UK registered company's operations must appear on their website.

Even if your website is informational only, it is prudent to include this information anyway, as the definition of ecommerce is not that clear. Business gained via your website, even if not transacted on the web, may fall under the ecommerce banner.

In any case, most of this information is now required under the Companies Act since 31 December 2006.

The following is the minimum information that must be made available to the public:

Registered company name

Per the Companies House registration.

Companies House Webcheck Service

Companies House Webcheck Service

Company registration number
