Frequently asked questions

Do I need a service address?

Yes, it is a legal requirement. Directors and LLP members cannot be appointed without providing this address information, because Companies House requires an official contact address for the public register and to deliver your statutory letters and notices. However, there are very few restrictions in your choice of address, as your service address can be in the UK or overseas, and you can use your home address, business address, registered office or any other address you like (apart form a PO Box No.).

Can I change my service address?

Yes, you can change your service address whenever you like - that’s not a problem. If you will be moving around a lot, our London service address is ideal, because all you will have to do is provide us with your new forwarding address whenever it changes. This will save you the hassle of changing your official contact address with Companies House every time you move.

Is a service address the same as a registered office address?

No, these two addresses are completely different. Your service address is the registered contact address of a director or LLP member, whereas a registered office address is the statutory contact address of a company or LLP. However, you can use our London address as both a service address and a registered office - you simply require purchasing both of these address services from us.

Do I have to renew this service after a year?

Yes, this service address is renewable every 12 months, but it will cost you exactly the same every year. Our registered office service has to be renewed on an annual basis, but the renewal cost will be exactly the same every year, so you will never pay more than £29.00 plus VAT per year to keep using this service.
