What is a Registered Office Address?

A registered office address is a company’s official address that is used for all correspondence from government agencies such as Companies House and HMRC. It is a mandatory legal requirement for all companies in the United Kingdom.

This address must be a physical postal address, not just a PO Box number. The company’s address will be placed on the public record and must be displayed on all company stationery and websites.

The registered office address does not have to be where the business actually operates. Still, it is essential to keep the registered address up-to-date with Companies House to remain valid.

FAQs about Uniwide Formations' Address Services

Can I use your registered office or business postal address for VAT registration?

The short answer is NO; you cannot use our address services for VAT registration.

It is not permitted to use our address services, such as Registered Office or Business Postal Address, to register for Value Added Tax. When you register for VAT in the United Kingdom, you must disclose the actual location of your business.

It must be a physical residential or commercial address at which HMRC can access your company’s VAT records to verify their accuracy. Please get in touch with your accountant or HMRC for more information on “when to register” for VAT.

How frequently is post forwarded?

Your official government mail will be scanned and e-mailed to you on the day that we receive it.

We aim to post all general business mail to your chosen forwarding address on the day we receive it.

How do I renew my address services?

The annual renewal of your address service – or services – is automatic, relieving you of any concern.

Thirty days before the end date a reminder will be e-mailed to you. There is nothing you need to do, however, since the renewal fee will automatically be debited using the card details that we hold for you.

You may, however, choose to cancel any such renewal for any address service that you use. This may be done at any time through your account on our website.  Alternatively, you may get in touch, and we will cancel it for you as you instruct us.

Can I purchase your address services after the RP07 form has been filed against my company?

An RP07 form (Application to change a company's disputed registered office address) is filed with Companies House when an address is used as a company’s registered office address without any authority to do so. Once this has been filed, Companies House will remove the unpermitted address as a registered office and put their default Cardiff address in its place. Once filed, only a paper AD01 form can be used to update the registered office address.

In most cases, after the RP07 has been filed, you can purchase our address services, but we suggest that you contact our customer services team beforehand, who will advise you accordingly.

What is a virtual company address?

A virtual company address is an address that can be used for business purposes but is not a physical location. Virtual addresses can be used to register a company or manage correspondence. It can help give your business a more professional image and make it more convenient for customers and clients to reach you.

Uniwide Formations provides three types of virtual address services in London, described on this website in detail: Registered Office Address, Service Address for company officers, and Company Business Postal Address.

Frequently Asked Questions about Registered Office Address

Can I use my home address as a Registered Office Address?

The law allows the use of a director’s or member’s home address as the Registered Office Address of the company or partnership as long as it is within the UK.  A private residential address can therefore be used both as the legally registered office address of the company and as an address through which paper correspondence is received.

This means, however, that your home address will be shown on the public register at Companies House and will be freely and openly accessible to any third party.  For this reason, using one’s residential address is not appropriate for business owners or managers who need greater privacy or confidentiality.

Therefore, it is common practice to use a separate address as the company’s registered address. This may be provided to a business by a third party, e.g. a company formation agency, to ensure that the business owners’ and/or managers’ home addresses are not publicly accessible.

Can I change my registered office address?

Yes, you can change the address of your registered office at any time after setting up a company. Still, it must always remain in the same region or jurisdiction where the company is registered, i.e. England and Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.

To change a registered office, the company directors need to approve the change. Companies House Form AD01 (for companies) or Form LLAD01 (for LLPs) must then be completed and delivered to Companies House. You can submit your changes free of charge via our Online Customer Portal.

I am currently renting my home; can I use this address as my company's registered office?

Yes, you can use this address for your company's registered office. But, if you rent your home, you might need permission from your landlord, housing provider, or local authority first.

You should check your tenancy agreement to ensure that having a registered office at the property does not violate its terms and conditions.

How can I update my Registered Office without the WebFiling Authentication Code?

If you need to update your Registered Office address but do not have the WebFiling Authentication Code, you can request a new code from Companies House. This code is essential for updating company details online. Alternatively, you can submit the change of address using paper form AD01 for a limited company or form LLAD01 for an LLP, which can be sent by post to Companies House.
