Named Company Secretary and Registered Office
What organisations are required to have a registered office address?
Every company, regardless of size, type or business sector, is required by law to have an address where official correspondence can be served. The registered office address, which may be different from the actual trading address, must appear on all official documents, including letterheads, invoices, order forms, websites and financial communications.
Many companies choose to display Bridgehouse Company Secretaries’ address as their registered office in order to benefit from a London postcode or to protect their privacy if trading from a residential address.
What do our registered office services include?
Our registered office service includes the forwarding of official correspondence, which by law has to be sent to a company’s registered office address such as communications from Companies House, HMRC correspondence relating to corporation tax matters or the Court Service.
Bridgehouse Company Secretaries can provide a Named Company Secretary service, along with the provision of a London-based UK Registered Office service. Mail forwarding, is also available.
What do we need from you?
To comply with anti-money laundering regulations, we ask for two ID documents (one of which must be photo ID and the other a proof of address document not more than three months old) for each director (or proposed director) and any shareholder with a holding of 25% or more.
