Do company directors need to disclose a service address?



I am starting up a new t-shirt factory in sunny London. I understand Companies House asks for a service address from each prospective company director, but I was wondering whether this was optional or mandatory. Could someone please advise whether I’ve got a choice to disclose my service address, or has this definitely got to be done?

Thanks and all the best



A service address is compulsory for all company directors. The address detail are disclosed on public record upon company formation. Companies House and HMRC will send your official director’s mail to your nominated service address.

If you want to maintain your privacy as much as possible, do not use your home address for this purpose - use a professional service address from a company formation agent or other address provider.
