Frequently asked questions
Why should I buy the Privacy Package?
It is specifically designed to provide confidentiality. The included registered office and service addresses enable you to keep your residential address off public record, thus protecting the privacy of your home.
In addition to this, you'll receive a full set of digital company documents delivered to you by email as soon as your company is incorporated.
Other benefits of this package include a free.com or .co.uk domain name and online company manager portal.
What is a registered office?
A registered office is the official address of a company and every UK limited company requires one.
The registered office address is listed on public record at Companies House, so many people prefer not to use their home address for this purpose.
This package offers the use of our Covent Garden address as your registered office for one year. This service is renewable on an annual basis at a cost of £39.00 plus VAT.
What is a service address?
A service address is the official address of a company director, secretary or person with significant control (eg. a shareholder who owns more than 25% of the company's shares) and they must supply Companies House with a service address.
A service address is listed on public record at Companies House, and so a lot people prefer not to use their home address shown there.
This package offers the use of our central London WC2 address as a service address for one company officer, and it is renewable annually at a cost of £26.00 plus VAT.
How much are mail forwarding charges?
All official government mail is scanned and emailed to you, free of charge.
Official government mail is classified as mail from the following agencies: Companies House, HMRC, Government Gateway, Department for Work & Pensions (DWP), Office for National Statistics, Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), and Court documents.
