What is a UK Registered Office Address?

A registered office is the statutory address of a Limited Company. It is a mandatory requirement of forming a company in the UK. This address will be the official address of your UK Company and it will be publicly available on Companies House Register of Companies.

This address will be used by Government Bodies to contact you company such as Companies House, HMRC, ICO, Government Gateway, IPO and DWP. It is therefore very important that you are able to receive post on this address.

What are the restrictions?

  • Your company must be able to receive post at this address.
  • The address cannot be a P.O Box Address
  • If the company is registered under Scottish jurisdiction, the address must be a physical address in Scotland.
  • If the company is registered under the England and Wales jurisdiction, it must be a physical address in England or Wales.
  • 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.
