Here at @UKplc Company Registrations, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get your new business up and running. Here are the answers to some questions we are frequently asked about registered office addresses.
No – you are welcome to use your home address or the premises from which you will conduct your business. However, in order to promote transparency, companies are required to display their registered office address on the Companies House register of companies. If you do not wish to display your home address to the public or overwhelm it with business mail, you may wish to consider purchasing a registered office address service.
A UK company requires a UK registered office address. Your registered office address should be in the country within which the company was registered. For example, companies formed in Scotland should have a Scottish address.
Yes. Official correspondence, such as letters from government agencies like Companies House and HMRC will be sent to your registered office address, so it needs to be somewhere that can receive post.
No. Your registered office address can be different to the address from which you actually conduct your business. For example, you may run a small business from your home but wish to keep your home address private, so you purchase a separate registered office address service to use on the public register of companies.
If you are forming a private limited company, public limited company, limited liability partnership or limited by guarantee company, you are legally required to have a registered office address.
