In addition to a registered office address, Companies House and HMRC require a service address to be provided by the following individuals: company officers (directors and secretaries), members of LLPs, subscribers (first shareholders or guarantors who become members during the company registration process), and ‘People with Significant Control’ (PSCs).
This address serves as a statutory correspondence address for the receipt of official mail from government agencies such as Companies House and HMRC. Service address details are placed on public record, so many people avoid using their home address for this purpose.
You have the option to add any of our address services to your preferred package when you are completing your online application form on our website. Simply enter the required details, proceed to checkout and submit your application form to Companies House online.
Companies House will register your service address details when your company is incorporated, so there is no need to notify them separately.
If you have already set up a limited company, you can still buy our service address at any time by creating a free account with us. You can notify Companies House about this address change at the same time.
Click 'Create Account', provide your company registration number (CRN) and authentication code to import your company onto our system, order our service address and proceed to checkout. That's it! Companies House will update your details on the public register within approximately 3 working hours.
