How long does it take to change my trading address?



I’m launching the process of changing my trading address, as our company has changed premises. If any of you have got experience doing this in the past, could you let me know how long it’s generally supposed to take?





The length of time required depends on how many people you have to inform but it’s usually a straight-forward process because there is no need to notify Companies House, unless your trading address is also used as a registered office.

Aside from informing your clients, service providers, suppliers and bank, etc, you will have to update your trading address with HMRC. You will have to do this for tax accounts that you are registered for, e.g. Corporation Tax, VAT, PAYE and Self-Assessment, but you can do it online by signing into your accounts. It’s pretty easy and your details will be updated immediately.
