Registered Office

Each company is officially recorded in the Register of Companies which is publicly available at the offices of Companies House and also online at www.companieshouse.gov.uk. Freely available information includes the company’s name, registration number and its registered office address.

The registered office is the address at which all official documents (issued by government departments and legal bodies) are served to the company and realistically, is where some other companies will attempt to send their promotional literature to when running campaigns aimed at new businesses.

Officially, it is also the address where the company should hold its own registers, including a register of directors and secretaries, and a register of shareholders.

Your company’s registered office can be at almost any accessible, effective address within the state the company is registered (England & Wales or Scotland) with the expection of PO Boxes. It is mandatory for the company’s name to be displayed at main entrance of the registered office address.

Many new companies are small operations run from home, often with just one or two people involved – this can sometimes present a problem when the Directors / Shareholders do not wish to use their home address as the publically displayed registered office for their company. Many accountants, solicitors and company formation agents have cashed in on this and provide a ‘registered office service’ which usually includes the use of their address on the public register and the forwarding of your official mail.
