Registered office for your limited liability partnership (LLP) must be a physical location. Companies House does not accept P O BOX address as a valid registered office address for your LLP.
HM Revenue and customs and Companies House will send reminders and letters to your registered office by hand or by post. This includes legal notices.
Your registered office address need not be a place where you run your business. Some businesses use their accountants’ office as their registered office so that their statutory mails can be dealt with promptly.
If for any reason you are unable to access to mails delivered to your LLP’s registered office address, it is time to change your registered office address.
You must inform Companies House of the change of your registered office address by submitting the form LL_AD01.
Your LLP may be struck off the register if Companies House received mails sent to your registered office being returned to them and they are unable to contact your LLP partners.
Registered office location
If your LLP is registered with Companies House in England and Wales, your registered office must be situated in England or Wales.
For example, If your LLP has been registered as only being situated in Wales then your registered office cannot be situated outside of Wales.
If your LLP is registered with Companies House in Scotland, your registered office must be situated in Scotland.
Similarly, If your LLP is registered with Companies House in Northern Ireland, your registered address must be situated in Northern Ireland.
