Address Service FAQ's
What is a Registered Office?
Like a natural person, a company has a ‘home’ address, where legal documents and notices may be served. This address is known as its registered office and, among other things, determines the company’s VAT and corporation tax office and the tax office dealing with any PAYE. This is the official address for serving of official notices, including notice of court actions against the company to recover monies owed.
When a company is formed, there is an obligation to register information with the Registrar of Companies, and subsequently to register changes to this information. This will include the names and address of the persons forming the company and the company’s registered office.
