What is a Registered Office Address?
A company registered in the UK can be registered in any one of four domiciles, these are - England & Wales, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Any Company so registered is required to have a physical address (i.e. not a PO Box) located within the domicile of registration as its Registered Office address.
The Registered Office address is the official address of the company and is important as any document delivered to this address is legally considered to have been delivered to the company. It is, therefore, the address that will be used by Companies House, HMRC and other Government Departments as the principle route of communication with the Company, as well as being the address at which any legal papers will be served.
Your Registered Office address is registered with, and made publicly available by, Companies House. If you do not have a suitable address for this purpose, and if your Company is registered in England & Wales, then Blue Sky Formations can provide you with a London address to use as your Registered Office Address, forwarding all official mail to an address you specify.
NB Your Registered Office Address must appear on all company stationary, invoices, emails, websites etc. in legible characters.
Why use our Registered Office address?
Taking advantage of the Registered Office Address service provided by Blue Sky Formations will give you a number of benefits:
Using our Registered Office service will keep your personal address off the public records of the company giving you extra privacy, but still enable you to receive important documents.
If you are resident overseas and do not have a UK address then using this service will allow you to incorporate a Company in England & Wales where you would otherwise be unable to do so.
Unless our Mail Forwarding Service has also been selected, we will only forward to you official mail.* This means that any junk mail received will not be considered official and will be intercepted before it reaches you.**
As our address is based in London this may add a perceived status to your company to your customers / suppliers. It may also give the impression that your Company has multiple office locations if you use a separate trading address.
* Official mail includes mail from Companies House, HMRC, Government Departments and the Courts.
** Director’s addresses will still be listed with Companies House, if you wish to keep your address completely private you should also take advantage of our Service Address for Directors facility.
