Change your company registered office address

If you are no longer able to access mails sent to your company registered office address, you must change your company registered office address with Companies House.

Under the UK company law, a limited company must at all times have a valid registered office address to which all formal letters and legal notices can be sent there.

Companies House and HM Revenue and Customs send all of their correspondences to your company’s registered office address only. Therefore, you must ensure your company registered office address is up to date and all mails can reach you.

How to change your company registered office address?

You may change your company registered office address by submitting form AD01 to Companies House within 14 days.

Update your company official stationery

You must also update your company’s registered office address on your company official stationery including letterhead, websites and any formal correspondences.

When filing your confirmation statement your new registered office address shall be presented instead of the old address.

It is also advisable to contact HMRC to inform them of your company’s new registered office address. This is because Companies House will not inform HMRC of the change automatically, they are separate governmental bodies.
