Registered address in Scotland (Edinburgh or Glasgow) - key features
About the registered office address
Prestige and privacy for your business, protect your personal details.
No rental contract restrictions. Your registered office address can be used on your company stationeries, business cards, e-mails and website.
Use the image of the building exterior on your website.
You will have the permission to list our address for your company or an LLP with Companies House & HMRC.
HMRC & Companies House incoming post forward to you.*
* Forwarding of official mail overseas is included into our fee.
This service is particularly useful for small businesses, such as those being run from home, who would like a separate, prestigious registered office address to be displayed on the public record.
Our registered office address service charged annually, and includes official mail forwarding; it does not include the forwarding of general business mail or bank statements.
If you require to use registered office address for receiving and/or sending all other types of mail, or use registered address for your banking needs, please apply for the general business mail option at the relevant part of this section.
If your company or an LLP is active, you are also required to display the corporate name outside or inside the registered office address so that it is visible in plain sight for any potential clients, visitors, or governing authorities to see should they need to inspect your records.
However, if your business maintains a dormant status, you do not have to display your corporate name.
In addition, if you are a trading company, it is often common for government authorities such as Companies House or HMRC to do surprise inspections, or to investigate the bookkeeping or the VAT records of your company. This will not apply to dormant companies, as they not have traded.
If you require having your registered office address as the trading address and want to use it for the further inspections by a third party or by government authorities, please apply for this service separately.
If someone comes to our office to inspect your company records, we will need to aid this person in their duties, which can take a few hours at a time.
In the case if you only need to have a registered office address for public records, & you will keep your company' registers, accountancy and VAT records elsewhere within UK, please provide us the details of your own SAIL (single alternative inspection location) address, and we will not charge you an additional fee.
The provision of a registered office address is fully in compliance with the Companies Act 2006 and the Companies (Trading Disclosures) Regulations 2008.

If you want Coddan to change your current address with Companies House & HMRC, we are charging £25 extra for that service.
About the money laundering regulations and provision of a registered office address
Due to the implementation of Money Laundering Regulations (EC Third Money Laundering Directive) it is now necessary for all Trust and Company Services providers including company formation agents (in our case: Coddan CPM LTD) to register with the HM Revenue & Customs and to put anti-money laundering systems into place.
We are therefore required to ask for a scanned identification of company directors and beneficial owners of all newly registered companies via e-mail first before we can undertake to provide registered office address service for your company.
Within 14 days we will require you to post us a recent utility bill(s) (for past three months) showing names and current addresses of this company' director(s) and beneficiary owner(s)', and also their passport or driving licence(s).
These can be original documents or copies certified by a solicitor, notary public or commissioner for oaths.
If you are an overseas based client you should provide us copies of passport(s) and utility bill(s) with the notarised translation into English.
We can process the order immediately to form your new company and provide a registered office address service but will have to file a change of registered office address to the address of the purchaser of the company if the due diligence information is not provided within 14 days of the commencement of the service.
Where we have provided registered office address service at your request and subsequently have to file a change of address because you have failed to provide due diligence documents, no refund will be given.
