When you form your new limited company you will be asked to provide the address of the registered office of the company. This must be a genuine address (not a PO box) to which official bodies e.g. Companies House or HMRC, can send important documents that require the attention of the directors.
The location you choose for your company's registered office will determine the place where your company is registered (England and Wales, Wales, Scotland, or Northern Ireland) so you need to consider carefully as you are not able to change this after your company has been registered.
The registered office address need not be a business/trading address for the company and this can be your solicitors' address or your accountants' address.
You can use a residential address but need to be aware that the registered office address will appear on the Companies House register. This is available online and easily accessible for public inspection, including by credit reference agencies and marketing companies, so you might want to consider an alternative.
Your company's registered office address should appear on your website, and all letters, order forms. It should also be displayed at any business premises.
