Service Address

£19 per year + VAT

What is a Service Address?

A Service Address must be provided by directors, shareholders, secretaries, PSCs (Persons with Significant Control) and LLP members. It will be used for these company officers and members to receive statutory mail and legal documents from official UK government agencies, including Companies House and HMRC.

Unlike a registered office address it does not need to be located in the UK, although it will be shown on the public register at Companies House. For this purpose you may either use your home address or purchase our Service Address option.

What you get:

  • Any official government mail will be scanned and emailed to you free of charge.
  • Your home address will not be shown on the public record.

Please note:

  1. This service is renewable on a 12 monthly basis at the prices quoted on this website.
  2. This service entitles 1 (one) person who is a company officer or member to use the address. If you require the service for more than one person, simply purchase this service for each person. If you wish to use the service for an appointment in multiple companies, it should be purchased for use in each company.
  3. The Service Address option covers the use of our address only for official government mail. This service cannot be used for general business correspondence, for which you should purchase also our Business Address Service.

What is the difference? 

Registered Office Address

All UK companies are required by law to have an official registered office address which is available on public record. If you purchase this service from us it will cover the use of our address for official government mail only (from Companies House, HMRC, Government Gateway etc.). 

Service Address

A Service Address must be provided by the company's directors, secretaries, shareholders, PSCs (Persons with Significant Control) and LLP members. It is an official address for individuals which is available on public record. The purchase of this service from us will cover the use of our address for official government mail only (from Companies House, HMRC, Government Gateway etc.).

Please note that those individuals must also provide Companies House with their actual residential addresses which will not be shown on public record unless they are used as service addresses.

Business Address

This service is not mandatory but it may be needed if you wish to use our address for receiving non-governmental general business post (from banks, suppliers, customers etc.). If you purchase this service from us we will forward all of your general business post to an address of your choice; otherwise such correspondence will be returned to the sender.
