A registered office is a legal requirement for all UK limited companies. It' s the official address of the company. It is publicly available for anyone to see. It does not need to be where you actually work from.
This is the address Companies House and HMRC send statutory letters and legal notices to. Companies are legally required to show this address on letters and their website. It cannot be a PO Box. It needs to be readily available for post to be received at, and signed for, if necessary
Landlords often won't let tenants use their address to register a company. They don't want to get legal hassle if your company fails. You don't want to use your home address on your website, either. It may look odd, and it's certainly not private.
So you get an address in the heart of London, which has the knock-on effect of improving your business standing. Get a private, confidential service at an affordable price.
It is not possible to use a PO Box address as the Registered Office Address. Other requirements are that the Company Registration Number and the Registered Office Address must be displayed on your company stationary (letterheads and invoices).
All your statutory mail will be forwarded free of charge worldwide. These are the letters sent from Companies House and HMRC. Usually, they are automatic reminders and notifications.
We post mail 3-5 times a week, Monday to Friday. When we email you we have a letter for you, it will usually be posted the same day, if your account is in good standing and has the relevant services and/or credits.
Consider us if you want to form a limited company (LTD) and would rather not have your home address on the public record and ending up in multiple other databases.

Proof of ID
We must confirm the identity and proof of address for any customer taking one of our address services, to comply with British Due Anti-Money Laundering (MLR) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations.
Q: Can I change the Registered Office later?
Yes. If you have an alternative address in the UK then you can file form AD01 with Companies House and the change will take effect in about a week. Please keep in mind that you will have to change the address anywhere else you have used it, also e.g. on your business cards and letterheads.
Q: What about other kinds of letters?
We email you if we get a letter of a type not covered by your subscription. We filter out junk mail. You then have the choice of adding the relevant services or credits, or, we can return the letter to sender after 14 days.
Q: Can I use your Registered Office address as my Director's Service Address?
Yes, if you pay the additional fee.
A Director's Service Address (or Correspondence Address) is the public mailing address of a Director, as a person. This is so people who have an issue with the company can send him formal letters, and for transparency. A company is a public body, it takes money from people and so who is running it must be known.
Bonus for buyers of the above:
Any statutory letters sent to the company at its registered office, or to the director, will be forwarded free of charge.
Q: What do I need to form a company?
Just one person (who is both director and the shareholder). You need to think up a unique company name and opt for 1 share at £1 ea; that's the simplest. Some unique ID info from you will be required by our system, to filter out bogus submissions by unauthorised people e.g. colour of eyes.
