What is a registered office address?
A registered office is an official address of an incorporated company and is publicly available. It is important for the Goverment and Clients to see where legal letters get sent to, and for any official representation to go in person if necessary.
It is a legal requirement to have a registered address for your business and the address must be within the UK. However, Your registered office address doesn’t have to be in the same region as your principal trading activity but it must be a complete, physical postal address in the same UK jurisdiction in which your company is registered. If you do not have a registered office address, you cannot open a business in the UK.
Why is a registered office required?
The registered office must be an address within the UK. This is the address that Companies House, HMRC and other government bodies will use to deliver legal letters and notices to. Companies are required to display their address on business correspondence, for example business website, business letters etc. Without a UK registered office address a UK company cannot be incorporated.
Why choose a different registered office address to your trading address
By purchasing a registered office address you are protecting your identity and keeping your personal address private and confidential. If you choose our prestigious London addresses your business then has a prime address location, on one of the most well-known and respected roads in London.
