What is a registered office?

The registered office is an address in England or Wales (or Scotland if your company is registered there) where documents can be delivered to the company. This address is declared on the public register. If a company changes its registered office address the new address must be notified to Companies House on Form AD01.

The registered office address cannot be a Post Office Box number. Companies House uses the Post Office address file to verify addresses; so, to avoid delays, please ensure that your proposed registered office address is recognised by the Post Office and always give the correct postcode. SFS offer a choice of registered office addresses for a small annual fee, for further details see our Registered Office page.
