    "below" instead of "herein after referred to as"

    Is it correct use "below" instead of "herein after referred to as" in a document (or email), which is slightly formal but not as formal as a legal document?

    For example,

    1. The new name of the company, ABC Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as ABC) will be announced tommorrow.

    2. The new name of the comapny, ABC Ltd. (ABC, below) will be announced tommorrow.

    Is Sentence 2 okay?

    No, that doesn't work.

    'Henceforth' is a bit less formal than 'hereinafter'.

    Note the correct spelling of 'tomorrow'.

    Sorry for off topic. I think I'm going crazy when I see such words like "henceforth", "hereinafter". Do you really use them?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    I don't, but I don't write legal documents.
    If it's not a legal document, you could write (ABC) after the first use and then use simply ABC afterwards.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    How about just "hereinafter"?

    ABC Ltd. (ABC, hereinafter) or ABC Ltd. (hereinafter ABC)?

    Of those choices, the second one.

    Why would they make you go crazy? They are just words. These words are rarely spoken but almost always written.
