What is a Registered Office Address?
A Registered Office Address, also known as a Registered Address is the address of your company. All post addressed to your company will be sent to the Registered Address. The Registered Office Address is held on the public register and is available for the public to view.
It is a legal requirement that all UK Companies have a Registered Office Address located in the UK.
