What is a company's registered office address?
A registered office is the legal address of a UK company and all UK companies must provide one. It must be a physical location in the UK.
It can be your business address but it does not have to be. It could be the address of your accountant, lawyer, or any other address that you choose to be suitable to receive official letters and legal notices.
You need to ensure that any official notices sent to this address will be received and can be responded to promptly, and that certain documents are available for public inspection at it on request - for example the company's statutory books. At the registered office you also must display the company name (see Disclosure of Company Name).
