But some many people get this wrong, and we routinely get parcels addressed to Andrews & Arnold Ltd, or as per the picture ANDREWS amp ARNOLD LTD. I think we have even seen Andrews &amp; Arnold Ltd once.
It is not rocket science.
It had caused no end of issues for us having an & in the company name. BT took ages to get the XML ordering right as they injected the company name in XML they sent on to their Openreach division so orders went in but did not progress normally and nobody in BT knew why.
We even have fun trying to send OTA messages to mobile SIMs to set the operator name to A&A. It keeps coming up as A&A on the phones.
Anyway, I now have UK company 08921585 which is &AMP; LTD.
But even UKPLC who do company formations insisted on emailing me about company & LTD, even in plain text emails!
I may have to set it up as a consultancy on XML.
