Service Address

Companies House Correspondence Address

What is a service address?

A service address is the official correspondence address for an individual company director, LLP member, secretary, or person with significant control. It is where they will receive their official government and business mail. A service address is a legal requirement, and these address details are displayed on public records.

Any full postal address in the UK or abroad can be used as a service address, except for PO Box Numbers.

Why do I need a service address?

  • It is a legal requirement of limited company directors and secretaries, subscribers (the first members who join a company during the incorporation process), LLP members, and people with significant control (PSCs).
  • To receive official government mail and legal notices from HMRC, relating to the individual’s role in the company/LLP.
  • Your service address will be displayed on the Companies House public register.
  • It ensures your residential address is not displayed on the public register of companies and is not searchable worldwide.
  • All personal statutory and business mail received at our London service address will be forwarded to our clients, by scan and email.
