This section provides the Commercial Organisation with the opportunity to their accreditation status with the IRCM CIC, which will include the date the accreditation was awarded and where applicable, renewed.

.

Each Commercial Organisation has the opportunity to include a description of its services.

This field denotes the legal name of the Commercial Organisation.

This is important for the Consumer as not every Commercial Organisation trades under their Company Name.

The Legal Entity Structure or Company Type defines the type of company that the Commercial Organisation is operating.  This is important for the Consumer, as this represents the legislation under which they are agreeing to a contract of service or product.

The List of legal entity types by country provides details of each type of company worldwide.
For example, in the UK the following types of companies are available:

  • Private Limited Companies – either by shares or by guarantee.
  • Public Limited Company.
  • Unlimited Company.
  • Partnerships – either a general partnership or a Limited Liability Partnership or a Scottish Limited Partnership or a Limited Partnership.
  • Sole trader.
  • Charitable Incorporated Organisation.
  • Community Interest Company.
  • Industrial and Provident Society e.g. co-operative.

Depending upon the Legal Entity Structure or Company Type the Commercial Organisations company may have a formal reference number.  Where this is the case, this reference number will be entered in this field.

The date entered in this field is the date by which the Commercial Organisation started trading.
Please note – this does not mean that they were trading as a Commercial Organisation from this date.  They may have added the work as a Commercial Organisation offering a product/service within the coaching and mentoring industry at a later date.

Where the Commercial Organisation has a Trading State Date and no Trading End Date, it indicates that the Commercial Organisation is still trading.  This is important for the Consumer, as a number of organisations and/or individual suppliers may still have the representation on their social media, website, marketing material, or other information; but may not be trading.

The date entered in this field is the date by which the Commercial Organisation stopped trading.
This date may not relate to the Commercial Organisation business, where they are trading in a different industry.  This date relates to where the Commercial Organisation ceases to trade completely or ceases to trade as in the coaching and/or mentoring industry.

Formally registered companies are required to register a formal company address.  This is found under the ‘Registered Office Address’ tab.

The Commercial Organisation may not be trading from their formally registered company address, and as such, they may register a different address under their ‘Trading Address’.

  • Date first issued – this is the date that the insurance policy was first issued.
  • Date expires – this is the current date the insurance policy expires.
