Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Let me just find the relevant law please
So the requirements to display your company name on business stationery is found in The Companies (Trading Disclosures) Regulations 2008:
The relevant part on your obligations is Reg 6 and the offences are described in Reg 10. A breach amounts to a criminal offence for the company and every officer of the company who is in default, and each may incur a fine at level 3 on the Criminal Justice Act 1982 standard scale. For continued contravention, there is a daily default fine of one-tenth of that sum. This is something that, if necessary, is enforced by Companies House and local Trading Standards officers
In addition, if a company is in breach of the regulations, and a defendant in litigation brought by the company can show that he has been prejudiced by the company's breach, the court may dismiss the company’s claim by reason of that breach alone. But obviously there must be a link between the breach and the action of litigation being pursued.
Thank you for that info

From what I understand we are in trouble either way?
Well don't think the worst just yet - this is a genuine error, not done maliciously and it also depends how it has affected the way business was conducted and those dealing with you
