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 official UK government agencies, such as Companies House, etc. 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 free forwarding of all statutory service address mail to our clients, by scan and email, on a daily basis.

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 government mail for the company officer will be forwarded free of charge, by scan and email, on the same day we receive it.
  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.

Official government mail is classified as mail from the following agencies: Companies House, HMRC, Government Gateway, Department for Work & Pensions (DWP), Office for National Statistics, Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), and Court documents.

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.
