What are the main differences between a Directors Service Address and a Registered Office Address.

Many customers need clarification on the differences between the two mentioned services we provide. Both have clear and marked differences, both only needed if you are a Limited Company director or shareholder.

Who would use a Directors Service Address?

The clue is in the name, a directors service address is only needed if your a director of a Limited Company. Companies House requires all directors to list their main address for correspondence. This means that if you list your residential address it is on public record at Companies House. If your address is on record anyone can search for your details and locate your address. Our directors service address can benefit people who wish to hide their address from public view and it can also look more professional having an established and prestigious address in London. There are also many other benefits that come with using our service, all of which can be found on the Directors Service Address web page here. The directors will occasionally receive post from either Companies House or HMRC, any post that we receive will be forwarded first class to your chosen address free of charge.

Who would use the Registered Office Address?

Again this is for Limited Companies, the directors would decide what address to list as the main legal registered office address, this is a legal requirement and would be listed on public record at Companies House. You can change your registered office address to a new one, and this will have benefits. Many clients choose to use our registered office service as they do not wish to have their residential address on public record. Other clients may wish to register companies in London to improve their image, and using our central London address can help portray this image to good effect. You will receive post from Companies House and HMRC and we will forward this for free to a chosen address.

Main Benefits of Both services

  1. Protects your residential address
  2. Portrays a professional image
  3. Helps to present a national image if using more than one address
  4. Free mail forwarding to your address
  5. Fast and easy to setup
  6. Affordable
