A QUESTION OF FULL NAME

Much of the documentation we administer together with our clients state that a Full Name is to be written in the space provided.  So what is a full name?  

Full name” means everything that makes up their name: first name, middle name (if any) and the last name or surname.  Please be aware some people do not have a middle name and you may also come across some who only have a surname and no first name. 

Initials are not acceptable – so Jospeh S. Bloggs or  J. S. Bloggs are not acceptable but Joseph Steven Bloggs is acceptable.   

So the next time you are administering a document for a client please check their ID to ensure that their full name is placed in the space provided.
