What is a Registered Office?

The Registered Office doesn’t have to be where a company conducts its business

The registered office is the official address of a UK limited company. This address can be any physical address based in the UK (there are rules about moving the registered office between countries) that the company has permission to use.

• It doesn’t have to be where the company conducts its business
• It can be a residential address (as long as the owner of the property has given permission)

Official bodies such as HMRC will send mail to this address; part of the criteria set out by Companies House is that this mail must then be forwarded onto the company director/s if they are not based in the building.

Our Mail Forwarding and Virtual Office Packages do not include a registered office service. If you own a limited company and wish to use our address as your registered office, you can purchase the relevant service here:

Registered Office Service: £45 plus VAT

I hope you have found this post helpful. Please let us know if you have any questions.

A History of EC1

St John’s Gate in Clerkenwell

Our offices are based in the heart of Islington and, if you have a mail forwarding service with us, your post is delivered right here at this prestigious location in Central London! But what makes EC1 so special? We decided to put on our historian hat and dust off some thick textbooks (well ok, we Googled it) in order to find out.

First, a little bit of Geography…

The EC1 postcode includes the London districts of Clerkenwell, Finsbury, the Barbican estate and part of the City of London. Clerkenwell, where our office is based, comes under the London Borough of Islington. Continue reading

Sarah Loves London because…

It’s Sarah!

It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow so what better time to post a new “We Love London because” post? Okay, tomorrow may be slightly better. Nonetheless, next up in the hot seat is Sarah, our Social Media Executive:

“When I started working for the Made Simple Group (BEST DAY OF MY LIFE) and moved to London from Wales just over a year ago, I couldn’t wait to see what the ‘big smoke’ had to offer.

Now, what I enjoy most about living in London is being so close to the West End. You can see world famous shows and theatre productions at the drop of a hat. Tonight for example I am going to see The Book of Mormon.

I love being able to go to the theatre every week and having such a large range of productions to choose from. Even the not so famous shows are excellent and illustrate the amount of talent that is in the city.

My favourite show to date? It’s got to be The Lion King. #classic”

Thanks Sarah!
