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.

A Service Address can be a residential or commercial address, but cannot be a PO Box number. For this purpose you may either use your own address or purchase our Service Address option.

When used specifically by a company director, such a service address is often known also as a director's service address.

Why do I need to provide a Service Address?

It is a legal requirement for all UK companies to have a Service Address on record for each company officer and member.

Service Addresses must be used for as long as the company officer or member remains in their role. You must still have a Service Address if you move or change your registered office address.

What you get:

  • Any official government mail will be scanned and e-mailed to you free of charge.
  • Your privacy is protected as your home or business address will not be shown on the public register.

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.
  4. The forwarding of official government post by scanning and e-mailing is free. Should you wish such post to be forwarded physically then we charge the Royal Mail postal rates plus a 15% handling fee (£1.49 + VAT minimum charge).
