Registered Office

Every Limited Company and LLP need a registered office.

We are asked “What is the registered office address and what does it do?”.

A registered office address is the official address of a company (or limited liability partnership) registered with Companies House. By virtue of Section 86 of the Companies Act 2006, every company must always have a registered office in the UK, even if it carries on its business from abroad (or just sells products online rather than from a physical location).

The registered office is the address to which government bodies – primarily Companies House and HMRC, but possibly also other agencies – may address official communications, notices and reminders relating to the company.

It is assumed that any official notice sent to the company’s registered office address has been received by the company. Because of this, the company’s registered office address must be effective for delivering documents to the company and its directors. It’s the company’s responsibility to ensure they have access to documents received at this address.

Please also remember your registered office needs to appear on the following documentation for the company:

  • Business letters, emails and other correspondence
  • Other stationery
  • Invoices and order forms
  • Brochures and other marketing material
  • Website(s)

Please note your registered office is not your trading address and as such should be treated separately.

If you wish to enquire about having your registered office at this address or are interested in any of our other services then please fill in the form below or if you wish to telephone your local office then please go to the contact us page.
