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.

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
