If you have a company in the UK, it is a legal requirement that you submit a Registered Office Address to Companies House.
Business owners often confuse their place of business with their Registered Office Address, but the two are actually different.
Your Registered Office Address is where you receive important mail and it is the official address that you must use on all of your outgoing correspondence.
Let’s take a closer look at why you need a Registered Office Address and how you can get one for you UK Company.
What is A Registered Office Address?
As you may have gathered by now, your Registered Office Address is your official address where important correspondence is sent like official government letters or notices.
Your Registered Office Address needs to be a physical address where items can be received.
Details of your Registered Office Address is also available to the public via the Companies House Public Register.
Why Do I Need a Registered Office Address?
When you set up a Limited Company in the UK, it is a requirement of the UK Government that you provide a physical address for your company.
Various UK Government agencies such as Companies House, Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (tax affairs) or one of the many other government agencies may send you official letters or notices relating to your Limited Company.
Any official documents that you send out like letters or invoices must display your Registered Company Address and you must also have it displayed on your company website.
It is very important to note that your Registered Office Address cannot be a PO Box. It must be a physical address, like the one we provide to our customers.
Many of our customers run online businesses and are located outside of the UK, which is why we offer a Registered Office Address with every company formation package.
