There are two relevant Acts of Parliament in relation to this matter.
First, the Companies Act 1985. Companies House(UK) provides the
following information from the Companies Act 1985.
?On which documents must the company name be shown?
The company must state its name, in legible lettering, on the following:
all the company's business letters;
all its notices and other official publications;
all bills of exchange, promissory notes, endorsements, cheques and
orders for money or goods purporting to besigned by, or on behalf of,
all its bills of parcels, invoices, receipts and letters of credit.?
Further down the page it states that its registered office address
should be shown on business letters and order forms. I do not believe
that a receipt comes under this definition.
The second (again from Companies House), is the Business Names Act
1985. Here you see that there is a requirement to place name and
address for service of documents. This applies to both registered
companies and sole traders.
?What details must be disclosed about a business?
You will need to disclose (as appropriate):
the corporate name; or
the name of each partner; or
the individual person's name; and
in relation to each person named, an address at which documents can be served.
Where must this information be shown?
You will need to show the information clearly in all:
the places where you carry on your business and where you deal with
customers or suppliers;
written orders for the supply of goods or services;
invoices and receipts;
written demands for the payment of business debts.?
I hope this answers your question. If it does not, or the answer is
unclear, then please ask for clarification of this research before
rating the answer. I shall respond to the clarification request as
soon as I receive it.
