Do I need a registered office address?


Hey, quick question regarding registered offices. I would like to set up a limited company online, and I’m being asked about a registered office. Is this optional to submit a registered office address, or must I absolutely do this?



A registered office address is legally required. But it’s nothing to worry about, you just need to nominate a physical address to receive official mail from Companies House and HMRC. It is also the location where you will have to keep your company records for inspection purposes.

Your chosen address must be in the same country where your company is incorporated. The address will be placed on public record, so you may prefer to use a non-residential address rather than your home address. However, either option is acceptable.
