Why do I need a business address?


Hi - setting up a limited company and I’ve just been asked for a business address. Why do I need to register a business address? Is there any reason in particular?



The company address you are asked to provide during the company formation process is known as a registered office. This will be your official contact address. It will be placed on public record and used by Companies House and HMRC to deliver statutory mail.

The term ‘business address’ refers to an optional contact address that companies can use for general business contacts - customers, investors, suppliers, banks, etc. Some companies have lots of business addresses if they trade in different locations.
