Company Formation With Single Alternative Inspection Location (SAIL Address)

Company formation with SAIL address: when registering a business in the UK, the authorities require an address where you are officially based, even if you're not trading from that location. To this address, they will send all their correspondence, and the provider of the virtual address - Coddan in this case - will forward it on to you.

You can't have a registered address in a part of the UK where your business is not based. Therefore, if you register a company in England, you cannot have a single alternative inspection location in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland; it must be in England only. Companies can now also have a single alternative inspection location (SAIL) when they register their business. This is an address that is different to the registered office address and it's where all the official company documents are kept to be made available to inspectors should the need arise. We can help you with a new company formation and the provision of SAIL address (single alternative inspection location) in London, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Company registration with the SAIL & inspection address

It means private company inspections can be carried out without disruptive intrusions into your actual place of business, including possibly from creditors. It's therefore suitable for people who run their business from home. Many law firms offer SAIL services whereby their office space is also used for other companies. Legal firms that provide this have signs outside their premises showing what companies have their SAIL or registered office there.

Many firms provide registered office address services, but not all are able to keep up with the legal requirements of doing so. At Coddan, we take special care to ensure that our clients are in full compliance with the law. We display your limited company names and have all the necessary documentation should an inspection of firms be carried out by the authorities.

Our fees for the provision of the SAIL address are highly competitive and our clients get all the necessary paperwork and documentation once the company registration process is complete. It gives peace of mind while ensuring professionalism at all times. Our team of expert companies formation consultants is available to talk to you about your company incorporation requirements today, and to explain how your proposed business can benefit from company formation with a SAIL address. From there on, it will be plain sailing.

Fast & simple company start up with the provision of SAIL service and inspection address

Establish a Limited Company in the United Kingdom

Company start up with registered and SAIL address: do you want to establish a corporation in the UK and take advantage of a prestigious Central London registered and SAIL address? Coddan can help. With a registered address in Baker St, London, or an alternative in Edinburgh, you can benefit from a prestige address without the inevitable cost of funding your own office in one of the world's most expensive streets.

The single alternative inspection location also allows you to specify an address, which could be the registered address, for the authorities to inspect your paperwork if they choose. Keeping the SAIL separate from your working life means that an inspection simply won't impact on your business and you'll keep going as normal.

What is the difference between a registered office address, a trading address and a single alternative inspection location address?

Difference Between a Registered Address and SAIL

Starting with the simplest of these, a company's trading address is simply the address where the firm does its business. It could be a home, an office, a garage or any number of other locations.

In the UK, a company's registered office address must be provided to Companies House when the company is registered. This legal address is then made publicly available to anyone who check the records with Companies House online and free of charge.

For many businesses, their trading address and their registered office will be one, and the same. There are a number of reasons, however, why business owners might want to keep them separate. Firstly, if the owner of the business works from home then he or she might not want their home address to be a matter of public record.

Secondly, your registered office must be in the same part of the UK that the company is incorporated. If your company registered in Scotland then the registered office must be in Scotland too. This makes the ability to have a registered office that is in a different location to your trading address useful for anyone with a UK registered business who has moved abroad or to a different part of the Great Britain.

Thirdly, accountants and solicitors often recommend that client businesses use their office premises as their registered office address. The authorities will send official correspondence to this address and setting it as your accountant's means that they will receive letters relating to tax as quickly as possible.

Fourthly, there are companies that will offer registered office addresses in prestigious locations, for example Westminster. Coddan offers customers who register their business in England the chance to have their business address in London, Liverpool or Manchester, if you are looking to establish a company in Scotland - the opportunity to have their registered office in Edinburgh.
