When do I need to purchase a directors service address?

A director`s service address can be purchased at any time before, during or after you have formed a company. A director is required to add an address at Companies House, this is a legal requirement. Statuary mail from HMRC or Companies House would then be sent to this address.

We would recommend that you purchase the directors service address before you form a company for some very good reasons.

If you want to use a director`s service address to protect your residential address and you have already formed a Limited Company at Companies House, the address already used will be permanently on record. So for example you have just formed a Limited Company using your residential address as the directors address any changes to this will still show the original address and the date of the change, as well as showing the new address.

Who can access my address?

Your Limited Companies information is stored on the company register and this is a public record. A public record can be accessed by anyone, most people these days will access the record via the web check service provided by companies house. This will show information such as the Company Name, Number, Date of Incorporation, Directors Details, and even financial information.

We strongly recommend using our directors service address in conjunction with our registered office address to help protect your residential address from public view.
