Register of directors’ home addresses

 

Companies House requires every company to keep and maintain the register of directors’ home address. This register is different from register of directors.

For communication with directors related to Companies House matters

The director's home address must be kept private and confidential. Your company can only use this information to contact the director on matters related to Companies House unless the director concern has given his/her consent to use his/her residential address for other purposes or if so required by the court.

The home addresses of the directors would not be published on Companies House website or be made available for public inspection. Any changes to the directors' home addresses Companies House must be informed through filing of relevant Companies House forms.

However, Companies House will provide directors' home addresses to Credit Reference Agencies and Specified Public Authorities.

When submit your confirmation statement

If there is any changes to the director's home address, use the Companies House Form CH01 to notify the Registrar within 14 days and make sure the change already registered with Companies House when filing your confirmation statement.
