Use our Service Address and keep your home address off the public record

UK company directors, LLP members, subscribers (shareholders or guarantors at the time of the company's incorporation), secretaries, and persons with significant control eg. shareholders who own more than 25% of the company's shares, are legally required to provide a service address for the public record. The primary purpose is for receiving their personal statutory mail and legal documents from Companies House and HM Revenue and Customs. You may use your private residence for this purpose, but do remember this information will be made available to the public.

Most of our company formation clients prefer to keep their personal address details confidential, choosing instead to use our Service Address. This includes the forwarding of all statutory service address mail to our clients on a daily basis. Free forwarding in the UK; small supplementary charge for forwarding mail overseas.

Please note:

  1. This product entitles one company officer to use the address. If you require the service for more than one officer, simply purchase the product for each person.
  2. You cannot purchase this product just once to use for multiple companies. If an officer wishes to use the service for an appointment in multiple companies, it should be purchased for use in each company.
  3. Our Service Address can be renewed every 12 months at the same rates and prices as year one.
  4. Official mail for the company officer (from Companies House & HMRC) will be forwarded free of charge within the UK. Forwarding of mail outside the UK will be charged at Royal Mail postage rates plus an additional 15% handling fee.
  5. This service cannot be used as a registered office address or for general business correspondence. If you wish to use our address for these purposes, please see our registered office and business address services.
  6. Proof of ID and address:
    To ensure we fulfil our obligations regarding The London Local Authorities Act, and the current Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations and Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements, we may require proof of ID and proof of address from clients who purchase an address service. The required documents are detailed in the welcome email we send all address service customers. For further information on ID requirements please click here.

Frequently asked questions

What is a service address?

This is the official address of a director, secretary or People with Significant Control (PSC) and is used by Companies House and HMRC to deliver all personal statutory communications and notices. Directors, secretaries and PSCs are required to provide a service address to form a limited company. The forwarding of service address mail (within the UK) is free of charge.

Can I use this service for my registered office address?

No. This service is for the use of one company officer and covers his/her personal government mail only. If you are interested in using our address for your registered office address, please click here.

What is the cost in the 2nd and future years?

The renewal cost of our service is £29.00 and £24.00 plus VAT per year for our London and Glasgow locations respectively.

What about general business mail forwarding?

The service address can only be used to receive official government mail for a company officer. If you would like to use our London WC2 address as your business address and have all your business mail and correspondence forwarded to you, please see our business address product which can be bought online.

What is unsupported mail?

From time to time our Mail Team may have to send out an email to a client on the subject of Unsupported Mail. This is sent when we receive mail that is out with the client's service offering, e.g. we receive general business mail and the client has only purchased a registered office address service, which covers official government mail only.
