“A company must at all times have a registered office to which all communications and notices may be addressed.”
When registering a limited company providing an office address is required but who can see this? Where does it go? It may come as a shock when you look up your company and see your home address. The address you use on companies house, invoices or post is considered public knowledge and is easily accessible to anyone.
How do I change this?
You can change your registered office address any time for free by filling out form AD01 and sending it on to Companies House within 14 days of changing the address. HMRC will then be told about the change from companies house and your details will be updated by both organisations.
Do I have to trade from my registered address?
No, there is no need for you to trade from, be present at or have even visited your registered address. It will mainly be used for public record, government correspondence and your peace of mind. It means you can have a corporate professional looking address on your website and business cards while maintaining privacy and avoiding the costs of owning and maintaining an office.
