How do I change a director’s service address?

Quick Answer

Directors’ details can be updated free of charge via Rapid Formations Online Admin Portal or Companies House WebFiling facility.

A service address is the official contact address of a limited company director. Companies House and HMRC will send statutory mail to this address. You can use any address you like, but it will be placed on public record.

Change a director’s service address

You can change this address at any point after company formation. You must inform Companies House  within 14 days of doing so. This can be done in one three ways.

  • Via the online Admin Portal of a company formation agent.
  • Online using Companies House WebFiling service.
  • By post to Companies House.

Choosing a director’s service address

Unlike a registered office, a service address can be situated absolutely anywhere in the world. This means there is no need to live in the country where you register your company. Your registered office will have to stay in the country of incorporation, but you can run your business from wherever you like.

You may use your registered office as a service address, or you can use your home. However, lots of people choose a non-residential address because they want to protect the privacy of their home.

The most common choice for many directors is a professional service address facility provided by another company. This type of service is widely available and usually very affordable. Any correspondence received at the professional address will then be forwarded on to the director at their home.
