A registered office address is your legal company address. It must be a UK address and is a standard requirement to be able to form a company in the UK. You will receive post from HMRC tax authorities and Companies House at this address only.
A trading address (also known as a virtual office address) is less formal and is basically the address which you use on your marketing materials, your website, your business cards and other correspondence. It is an address where you can receive your general business mail ie from customers, suppliers, partners, banks etc.
A Director Service address (also known as a Service Address) is the correspondence address for each director of a company and is on public record. This does not have to be a UK address.
