Frequently asked questions

What is a Registered Office?

A registered office is the statutory address of a limited company or LLP. You must provide registered office details for Companies House when you incorporate a company or LLP in the UK. Government agencies (such as Companies House and HMRC), will then post all of your official company mail to this address. It will also be disclosed on the public register of companies.

A registered office must be a full physical address (not a PO Box Number) that is situated in the UK jurisdiction where a company or LLP is registered, which will be England and Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.

What is official government mail?

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.

Can I change my Registered Office address after company formation?

Yes, you can change the address of your registered office at any time after setting up a company, but it must always remain in the same country. Companies House must be notified immediately if you change this address, and you should ensure all business stationery, correspondence and your company website clearly display the new registered office address.

Can I use the Registered Office service as my service address?

Company directors, shareholders (who are also persons with significant control), and company secretaries must each provide Companies House with a service address which will be displayed on the public register. Should you prefer to use an alternate service address and keep your home address off the public record, you must purchase our service address option separately. You will be provided with the same London address, but you cannot use the Registered Office service for this purpose.

Can I use the Registered Office service to receive other business-related mail?

No. 1st Formations Registered Office service can only be used for the receipt and forwarding of statutory mail. However, our London address is available as a Business Address service that you can purchase separately online. This service will allow you to have all general business mail delivered to this address and then forwarded on to an address of your choice.

How much does the Registered Office service cost after the first year?

1st Formations London Registered Office service can be renewed on an annual basis for £39.00 plus VAT.
