WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HAVING
A DIRECTOR SERVICES ADDRESS?
The most obvious benefit of using our Directors Service Address is to protect your residential address from being displayed on the pubic register at Companies House. By law in the UK, any directors private details from their company incorporation has to be included on the paperwork for Companies House.
This means that each company director has to submit their residential address and service address to Companies House. The service address is where all legal and statutory mail is sent from both Companies House and HMRC. By using our Directors Service Address package, you can have this address displayed on the public register at Companies House while your own home address is safely kept off the record and away from public view.
Many company directors will choose to use their residential address as their service address at incorporation out of convenience, especially if their company doesn’t yet have a permanent address, or the company is using a temporary space and is planning to move premises very soon. Some directors will use their own address simply because their business operates from home, for example if you were setting up an online trading business where you might be keeping stock in rented storage with no attached office.
If you choose to use your residential address as the service address it will be available on the public register for anyone to view. This can leave your residential address open to having cold callers arrive on your doorstep at all hours of day on any day of the week. It will also be an open invitation for junk mailers to bombard your letterbox with unwanted leaflets, flyers and junk mail.
Purchasing our Directors Service Address package will stop unwanted junk mail and visits from cold callers. The address used for the public register would be: KEMP HOUSE, 152-160 CITY ROAD, LONDON, EC1V 2NX.
Once you have registered for our service you can decide on exactly how we manage your mail.
