I think I know the answer to the question which is basically yes but am just trying to see if anyone has a different view.
Section 82 of CA 2006 comes into force tomorrow, 1 Oct, under SI 2008/495 The Companies (Trading Disclosures) Regulations 2008. 3(a) of the regulations states that the company shall display it's name at its registered office (does not apply to companies that have always been dormant). After speaking to ICAEW I understand that a similar provision in CA 1985 only applied to where the company was carrying out its business.
Regulation 5 states that the registered name shall be so positioned that it can be easily seen by any visitor. You are allowed to have a display screen but you have to display the name for 15 seconds every three minutes so only 12 companies per screen.
If anyone can think of a get out that would be good or have you all now got all the names displayed, or will have by tomorrow?
According to Companies House the regulation does not apply where the registered office is residential.
