Message: date_default_timezone_get(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

Business Names Act 1985

Business Names Act 1985

Under the terms of this legislation, partnerships must display the names of all the partners (unless there are more than 20 partners, see below) on all business documents and at the place(s) of business. This means that practices must list all the partners on headed stationery and other correspondence. If the names of non-partners (e.g. the practice manager, salaried GPs) are shown, they must be clearly denoted as such.

If the business has more than twenty partners, it is not a requirement to put all the partners' names on business documents. However, an address of the principal place of business must be given stating that a full list of the partners can be inspected there.

If the partnership name consists of the surnames of the partners, the legislation does not apply.
