Legal Question: Regarding Parking Tickets I received a

Customer Question

Legal Question: Regarding Parking Tickets

I received a valid parking ticket from a trading name company ~ Ace Security
Services which does not have a limited company name on it nor any VAT No.

The company's actual limited name of Pace Recovery and Storage Limited only shows
up on the company's payment web site where one is asked to pay the actual fine.

I thought VAT registration threshold for Supplying goods or services if turnover of
VAT taxable goods and services supplied within the UK for the previous 12 months
is more than the current registration threshold of £79,000 such VAT number should
be shown on every ticket issued just the same as any invoice for services supplied

This of course very much depends on how much of the ticket element is a
fine as opposed to service charge but even if all the charge is a fine for a
ticket not to show any company registered office address nor any
company registration number - Question: is this a legally valid ticket ??
I looked at Companies House FAQ's on Company Rules and Regulations
which does not make it exactly clear in regards XXXXX XXXXX tickets.

Can you help me decide whether such a parking ticket without any
showing any VAT number nor any limited company name nor a full
registered company address is legally valid or not ??

With the above in mind I await your answer with much interest.
I remain yours faithfully
