Change a registered company address: all limited companies are required to have their details filed through Companies House, and this record must include a valid address for the business. In the case of companies with multiple locations, this is likely to be a head office or headquarters. For home based companies, an alternative address might be used for security and privacy reasons. When a move occurs or when your details change, you will need to update your details on the official register. In order to change your registered company address, you need to file a request with Companies House. The address you choose should be a legitimate premises to which you have access, and is likely to be where your own records are held.

|Change of a Registered Address|
We are charging £25.00 for the company registered address change if you have the web-filing code, and want to use one of our addresses in London (£50.00) Edinburgh (£75.00) or Belfast (£75.00) as your new company' registered office address. For additional £25.00 we provide full legal support for the address change of your company, preparing the draft minutes from members' meetings, the consent to short notice for the extraordinary general meeting (EGM), the minutes of the EGM, and the proxy voting form.
Companies change location all the time, and when they do, they have a duty to inform the relevant authorities so they can update the office address at which the company is officially registered.
Companies House rules stipulate that the new office address must, however, be in the same legal jurisdiction of the country that the company was initially incorporated in. That means if your company was registered in Scotland, the new address must be there, and it's the same for England and Wales, as well as Northern Ireland.
Once the change has been reported to Companies House, using its official documentation and within 14 days of a move to the new premises, they will then inform other authorities, such as HM Revenue & Customs for your tax affairs, so there's no need to do so separately. If your contact details also change, these too must be reported.

A company that is listed with Companies House has to fulfil many legal duties. One of the most important is the obligation to keep statutory registers and to make them available for scrutiny whenever this is required. The registers have to be kept up to date and must be stored at the company’s registered office.
So what records do you need to keep? The Register of Members contains a range of information relating to the company's shareholders, and the Register of Directors is a record of the particulars of each of the company's directors. Companies are also required to keep a Register of Secretaries, a Register of Charges and, since 2015, a Register of Persons with Significant Control.
The rules governing these registers were updated both by the Companies Act of 2006 and the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act of 2015, so if you are uncertain about your company's responsibilities in the area of statutory registers, it can be helpful to talk to a professional advisor.
