Companies House does not itself render any charge for the use of a services address but in some situations, a private provider of such facilities might render a charge for its use.
The choice of whether to use a third party service office address instead of the member's residential location can be made on an individual basis. Some appointees may view the disclosure of their residential addresses to the public an option they are willing to undertake.
Others might have differing views. Recent pronouncements on identity thief particularly though internet fraud might increase the numbers of members wanting to take advantage of the new identity protections. In fact, there are few obvious disadvantages pertaining to using a service address for a private company's members given that the correspondence between Companies House and individual officers is infrequent. Such direct contact is usually only made when letters sent to the registered office are returned as undeliverable.
