A visiting card, also known as a calling card, is a small paper card with one's name printed on it. They first appeared in China in the 15th century, and in Europe in the 17th century. The footmen of aristocrats and of royalty would deliver these first European visiting cards to the servants of their prospective hosts, solemnly introducing the arrival of their owners. Corporation Sole.
As a Corporation Sole you may be involved in several types of activity, so from time to time you may need to identify who you are.
The 'Business' Card should:
- represent the Corporation Sole rather than yourself
- provide an address, telephone number and e-mail address (one or more of these as you deem fit)
a web-based e-mail address (such as Yahoo) allows you to check and send e-mail while away from home. You can register at http://mail.yahoo.com.
Have a list of alternative 'identities' in case the one you choose is not available - in the example below, "wakefield" is the identity.
You will also be asked several other questions to identify yourself: always remember the replies you give to these questions!
- identify you as the Overseer (or other alternative Office chosen)
- provide address etc of Overseer if different to that of the Corporation Sole
