Registered Office Service

There are two ways to transfer your registered office to our address.

Option 1

Use this option if you already have a company or LLP but do not have your web authentication code. This option will enable you to buy our Registered Office Service and any upgrades you require. Once you have completed your purchase, you will have to advise Companies House of the change of registered office address. You can do this by submitting form AD01 or if you are an LLP; form LLAD01.

Option 2

Use this option if you already have a company or LLP, and you have your web authentication code. You will be given a free online portal with which to maintain your company’s records at Companies House. Your portal will have a facility enabling you to import your company details from Companies House. You will need your company’s or LLPs web authentication code to complete the import. Once imported, you can make the change to your Registered Office online. The update at Companies House will take no more than a couple of hours.

Registered Office-Legal requirements

  • All Companies registered at Companies House must have an official address in the country of their jurisdiction
  • The Registered Office is the official address of the company, and all official communications will be sent to that address.
  • Official communications are those issued by Companies House, HMRC (the UK Tax Authority) and the UK Courts of Law
  • The Registered Office must be a physical address, capable of having documents served on the directors. That is to say, the documents will be received and brought to the attention of the intended recipient, in the event of court proceedings. For this reason, it cannot be a PO Box unless that is part of a complete address i.e. it has a street address and postcode.
  • Companies House splits the UK into 3 jurisdictions; Scotland, Northern Ireland and the joint jurisdiction of England and Wales. A company can have many trading addresses in many jurisdictions but it can only have one Registered Office.
  • A home address can be a registered office. A company using a home address is exempt from the requirement to display its name outside.
  • The address used will be on display at Companies House so that it is publicly available. Many database services such as 192.com publish information they extract from Companies House Web Site. So names and addresses quickly become available on the internet. For B2B businesses, this may not be a problem but B2C businesses, rarely want their private addresses publicly available, to avoid unwanted attention.
  • A company can only have one registered office but can have many trading addresses, where it conducts its business. For instance a bank and its branches or a chain of supermarkets.
  • A company must display its name at its registered office. Dormant companies are exempt from this requirement. A location with more than 5 registered offices is able to use alternative display options.
  • The Company must keep its statutory records at the Registered Office. Alternatively the company can nominate a SAIL (Single Alternative Inspection Location). Companies House must have a record of a SAIL.
  • A company must display its Registered Office Address on all its business stationery including invoices, web sites and emails.

Our Registered Office Service includes the following:

  • Our address in Central London for Companies registered in England and Wales. You will be able to display this on your official documentation, emails and so on, as follows:
    Your Company Name Limited
    27 Old Gloucester Street
    London
    WC1N 3AX
    United Kingdom
  • Free Directors service address for all your directors: Maintain your directors’ privacy by ensuring their personal addresses are not displayed on the Companies House public website.
  • Official Post processed free of charge: Post received from Companies House, HMRC and the courts will be scanned and uploaded to a Citrix ShareFile account. You will be notified that you have post and will be able to download it using your username and password. So whether you are at home or travelling, you will always have access to your official post.

    Please note; Other post such as letters from banks, suppliers and customers will be returned to sender.
