Organisations: Organisation Naming Convention
Consistent naming of an organisation is essential for the operation of the Shared Workspace service.
Each organisation is given a unique name and consists of up to two parts
- the organisation name
and, where needed
- sub-group name
All organisations must be named in accordance with the guidelines below.
|Type of organisation||Name|
|Company||Use the name recorded in CTSA (this is supplied by Companies House).|
For example: UK Business Ltd
- When a Company has more than one registered address a geographical identifier must be shown as a suffix to the company name.
The suffix is entered in the organisation name field, not the sub-group field e.g. Organisation name = UK Business Ltd (London) Sub-group name = Pensions 2. Where an organisation is set up for a specific department, the sub-group field is used to record the department name, e.g. Organisation name = UK Business Ltd Subgroup name = Accounts | | Partnership | The name used must be the one recorded by HMRC in Self Assessment.
|Other Government Department||This must show the name of the Government Department.|
The sub-group field is used to record the cross-government project, e.g.
Organisation name = HM Treasury
Sub-group name = Shared Workspace
