London Registered Office

What is a registered office?

A registered office address is a legal requirement for all companies and must be situated in the same territory of the UK that the company is registered. This address is where any correspondence for the company will be sent. For example, letters from Companies House, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). Official and legal documents will be served at this address.
