September 8, 2016 · Print This Article

Your letterheads have to meet certain requirements in South Africa. While the design and the quality of paper they are printed on are important, any leading printing company in Edenvale should be able to advise you on the necessities for letterhead printing, which are simple and vary depending on your business. Here are some of the requirements to place on your letterheads.

If you are a sole trader, you can trade under your own name or you can choose a different business name. If you choose a business name that is not your own name, you must include your own name and the business address on all letterheads and order forms.

If you are a partnership business, your letterheads, order forms, receipts and even invoices must include the names of all partners and the address of the main office. If there are many partners, then it is also acceptable to state where a list of partners may be found.

If your company is trading as a limited company, the letterhead and order form stationery must include:

  • The full registered company name
  • The company registration number and place of registration,
  • The company registered address
  • The address of its place of business (if different)

For a limited company there is no need to include the names of the directors on the letterhead, but be aware if you choose to name a director you must name all of them. It is also sensible to include all your generic company contact information such as a telephone and fax number, a URL for the website and an email address.
