If you want to set up a private limited company in England and Wales, you’ll need a registered address. This address will be used to receive correspondence from Companies House. Each company director will also need to provide an official address and both the company address and each registered director’s address are listed on Companies House for anyone to view. This is why many businesses use a registered office service.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a registered office?
Every company must, by law, have a registered office in the country of its incorporation and keep Companies House notified of where that registered office is. A company need not trade from its registered office but every company is required to keep certain information - (See the question "What are the company registers?" for more details on this) - at the registered office.
What is government post?
The only post that, by law, must go to a company's registered office is post from HMRC and Companies House. Our registered office service will ensure that all such post is forwarded on by pdf to the email address specified by you. Want the original? Not a problem, we will keep all original post for at least three months and should you want it sent on to you, for a small handling fee of £2 per item, we will do just that.
What about other post?
All other post is also included in the £175 fee, although we will charge £2 per item to forward all non-governmental post.
What is a director's service address?
Any director of a company must provide Companies House with an address to which any official correspondence relating to that director may be addressed. Director's often do not wish this to be their residential address and Companies House permits the registered office to be used for this purpose. If you choose our registered office service, we can also register each director as having their service address at the registered office for no extra cost.
What else can you do for my company?
We also offer bespoke services including digitalising your company registers; creating board minutes, shareholder resolutions, share certificates, articles of association and shareholder agreements; VAT registration; data protection registration with the ICO; being your agent for service of process and nominee/trust arrangements. If you need any of these services, please Contact Us for a quote.
What is a trading address?
Your trading address is where your business is conducted from and is often, for smaller companies, a home address. If you would like us to handle all your business post, we can provide a trading address which creates a professional image for your business and protects your privacy at your home or your place of work.
