REGISTERED OFFICE & DIRECTOR’S SERVICE ADDRESS
A registered office is a legal requirement that all Companies registered at Companies House have to have. It is the official address of the incorporated company and is publicly available for anyone to view. The address can be different to that of your usual trading address or principal place of business. The address will be used by Companies House, HMRC and other Government bodies to deliver statutory letters and legal notices to. All companies are legally required to display the registered office address on business correspondence, stationery and website.
A company is an individual legal entity / person. For other entities to interact with it officially, it has to have a fixed correspondence address or registered office address. It cannot be a website, as no one can send letters to a website and a website has no physical presence. It cannot be a P.O. box number, as that is merely a designation within a building. The government and your companies partners need to see an official address where legal letters can be sent to and where an official representative of a government body can go in person to make representations. post statutory letters and legal notices.
Your trading address is where you physically operate from and can be a room in your home or outbuilding. When you submit a VAT registration application, HMRC will ask what your trading address is. This is not your registered office. A UK company can have a registered office in England and Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland and, once registered in one of these jurisdictions, it cannot be transferred i.e. if you register a company in Scotland you can’t then move its registered office to England.
If you have a street that is well-known and respected, it will reflect on your company. Your clients will equate that prestigious address with quality service.
