What is a Registered Office?

A registered office is the official address of a UK limited company or LLP. It must be provided when you incorporate a company in the UK.

The registered office address must be a physical location in the United Kingdom at which official papers such as mail from Companies House and HMRC and court documents can be served.

The registered office address doesn’t need to be the company’s place of business provided that any official papers delivered to the address are seen by the company directors.

The registered office address is listed on the Companies House public register where it is freely available for anyone to see.

All mail from UK government bodies and general business mail will be scanned and emailed to you, free of charge.

  • It ensures your residential address is not displayed on the public register of companies and is not searchable worldwide.
  • It prevents unsolicited visitors and mail from arriving at your home.
  • If you are a non-UK resident, it gives access to a UK address because a company’s registered office must be based in the UK.
  • To receive official government mail from governing agencies, such as Companies House and HMRC.
