There can be many reasons for wanting a registered office address within a particular country, and it can make more sense than merely having a single trading address. A regular trading address can be classed as the relevant premises details of any business, and many companies may find that this is entirely sufficient for their needs.
However, many types of businesses and corporations could reap significant rewards by employing the services of registered office address providers - these advantages can be both financial and logistical.
Coddan Ltd has many years of experience in companies formation in UK and the provision of dedicated registered office addresses for businesses, and this service makes great business sense for any size of a limited company. At the smallest end of the scale, somebody that operates their enterprise from home may wish to keep their exact location private.
As it is a legal requirement to be able to report a company address, getting a separate registered address gives an official set of details that can be printed on official documentation and material.
Registered office address providers often suggest that the registered address of a business should be the company's formation agent, accountant or solicitor. This can be extremely useful for fast and efficient administration, because any legal correspondence or tax documentation will arrive directly at the appropriate place - saving the hassle of having to forward it on.
For an added touch of prestige, Coddan Ltd can also arrange company registration with the registered office address within a capital city, such as London, Edinburgh in Scotland, we can also help with a new company registration with the provision of a registered business address in Liverpool, legal business address in Manchester and Sussex.
What is a SAIL inspection address? This abbreviation stands for 'single alternative inspection location', and registered office address providers can now offer this product as an alternative address for the storage of documents.
If any kind of investigation has the potential to disrupt a business at its regular address, another location can be nominated to minimise this level of disruption. It is standard practice for such companies to display SAIL information on a plaque at their regular premises, informing others about the correct address for inspections and investigations.
Although it may be tempting to choose the cheapest provider for this vital business service, companies need to have confidence in their company registration provider, and this may not be the case with many advertisements that seem to be offering a 'bargain'.
Although the company formation with business address process can be relatively straightforward for the recipient, there are many legal considerations that need to be fulfilled correctly, and any mistakes could be costly. Coddan Ltd representatives have many years of experience in incorporation of companies, and this provides clients with 100% peace of mind in the process, as well as excellent value for money. While having a PO Box address can be useful for businesses with an element of incoming mail, it can also benefit companies that wish to maintain a level of secrecy.
However, there are very good reasons why a PO Box address cannot be used as an official trading address, and they are all based upon the fact that there is no physical location that can be easily linked to a PO Box. Institutions, such as HMRC, and government inspection bodies, do not allow this form of registered address as it could feasibly be used to try and hide certain elements of a business. But at the same time a company owner may not wish to use their home as an official inspections location address - usually due to the risk of disruption to their personal life.
Bearing all of this in mind, Coddan Ltd can offer businesses a number of registered office address services across the United Kingdom.
Aside from the benefits for companies that operate from a residential address, there are also benefits when trading and operating from a traditional commercial setting. Most businesses will usually employ the services of accountants and solicitors, and if these professionals also allow their offices to be used as a registered office address, any relevant correspondence regarding taxation and legal issues will effectively arrive at the best address.
No forwarding of mail is involved, and vital issues of administration can be dealt with quickly and efficiently. From an image point of view, a company may not wish to be publicly associated with a certain geographical area, and these services allow a company to have a public trading address that is suitable for their target market.
Having the necessary business documents stored at a separate location will minimise disruption in the event of an inspection, as the regular operating premises will be able to continue as normal. Although such an event is not to be taken lightly, a well-organised registered office address will speed up the whole process and present a business in the best possible light.
Coddan Ltd representatives can also advise company owners about the benefits of having a SAIL address (Single Alternative Inspection Location), and this system allows directors and owners to nominate a single external address to act as a premises for inspection.
Any necessary paperwork, documentation and files can be stored there, and arriving inspectors can proceed with minimal disruption to other key areas of the company. When a business takes advantage of a SAIL setup, they can display the location's address on a plaque where customers enter their premises.
Companies that trade in the UK need to have a registered address for them to be able to operate. Many business owners opt for using their own home address, but, as this registered office address appears on public records, it can lead to some unfortunate privacy issues. In addition, it may not be possible if you are renting a property, because your landlord may simply not allow you to list it as your registered office.
Whatever the case, using your home address as that of your registered office means it legally has to appear on your company website, making your personal life very visible and therefore vulnerable to invasion by customers and all other members of the public.
A danger is that deliveries of supplies may be made to your home, and aggravated callers will know on which doorstep to make their grievance felt. Because your company's name and registered address is recorded at Companies House as a publicly available record it means that anyone can look it up.
The address of your registered office is a badge that says a good deal about your business, its reputation, and what image it seeks to portray. For a company to generate a professional air, instilling confidence in clients, something more than a home address is required. Nor can a registered office address be a Post Office (PO) Box number. It has to be a full postal address.
At Coddan Ltd, as well as organising the registration of companies, the team also acts as a registered office address provider in London (Baker Street), Liverpool, Manchester, Scotland (Edinburgh), and Northern Ireland (Belfast). Companies House, Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC), and other authorities use the registered office address of your limited company to send official documents, and they therefore assume such documents have been received by the company directors.
By using Coddan's registered office address service enables Coddan to deal with any correspondence sent from Companies House and HMRC, processing it immediately, and alerting you to anything urgent by telephone or email. Although routine, dealing with business correspondence is an important part of running a successful business. In addition, your company is required to hold its official company documents - its register of shareholders, and its constitutional documents - at its registered office address.
When registering a company with Companies House, you must choose to register it in one of four domiciles: England and Wales, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland. You must also provide a physical address, situated within the domicile in which your company is registered, as a registered office address. Companies House verifies all registered office addresses through the Post Office, so you must ensure that the Post Office recognises your chosen registered office address.
The registered office address serves as the official address of your company and it is essential as any document delivered to this address is considered by law to have been delivered directly to your company. Therefore, your registered office address is the address that Companies House, HM Revenue and Customs, other government departments and the courts of law will use to send important correspondence to your company. Companies House will also publish the details of your registered office address in its public records.
Our registered office address service will provide you with a range of benefits. UK companies are required by law to display their company's name at their registered office address and on any company documents and correspondence. Through our registered office address service, you will be able to comply with this requirement and benefit from exhibiting a prestigious UK address on all your stationary.
It is important to realise that the benefits of a registered office address extend much further than legally facilitating company registration. If you work from home, a third party registered office address will enable you to remove the possibility of an inspector turning up at your house to view your company's records. Furthermore, it will prevent your clients and suppliers from being able to contact you at your home address.
If you wish to register a company in UK from abroad, you will be required by law to have a UK registered office address. If, however, you do not own or have access to a property to use as a registered office address, you will struggle to meet this vital requirement. The use of our registered office service will enable you to pay for a UK address that you can then use to incorporate a company with Companies House.
As part of our wide range of services at Coddan, we provide official addresses for clients that are different to their actual premises, and these are then registered with the relevant authorities. There are many reasons why people might want an official registered office or business address. At the smallest scale, there are many companies of all types that are small and operate from home.
Owners of these businesses value their privacy and they don't want business people and government officials turning up to their home all the time, as it would be overly intrusive and upset the harmony of the home environment. They might also not want their home address appearing on official company registers, as it might give the wrong impression to clients and suppliers.
Medium and large companies may also want to protect their privacy, for reasons of competition. They can also have a single alternative inspection location (SAIL) address, which facilitates inspections by the authorities and is where the official company documentation is kept for that purpose. The simple solution to worries about addresses is to let Coddan supply an official office or business address. These are located at prestigious locations in the capital as well as in major cities right around the country.
This address is then available to clients to use as they wish – for example, printing it on business cards or using it on signs or in emails and documents. All official documentation from the authorities, such as Companies House and HM Revenue & Customs, will then be forwarded on to clients' place of business or residence. This service from Coddan is also beneficial to those who are not resident in the UK, and require an official office or business address in order to register a company or to transact business in the United Kingdom.
Registering a limited company with Companies House in the UK is a relatively straightforward process in itself, but it can present certain difficulties and pitfalls which are more easily avoided by utilising services such as those offered by Coddan Ltd. We provide incorporation service to assist companies with completion of the Companies House registration form. This ensures that your LTD company registration application form can be checked by business experts prior to submission, and makes any delay in the process much less likely.
Use of our addresses for your registered office - further advantages of this registration service include the use of our addresses in London, Liverpool, Manchester, Belfast and Edinburgh for your company's registered office. In the UK, Companies House requires businesses to have a registered office address in the same country in which they are registered. Upon company incorporation with registered office address, this address is made public. Where the business owner lives and works from home, they may not want this address to be known publicly. By using our addresses, this can be easily avoided.
In some cases, a business trading address may have moved to a different country from the one in which they are registered. To avoid difficulty with Companies House, the registered address can become one of the addresses offered by Coddan Ltd in the UK. Where we deal with the accountancy and legal aspects of a business, it is beneficial for our addresses to be used as the registered address, so that official documentation and tax information can be received as soon as possible.
SAIL address - the single alternative inspection location (SAIL) address is a response to the 2009 changes to the law that requires certain documents to be available to the government for inspection purposes at the registered company address. These documents have to be made available for inspection for at least two hours of each working day. Private limited companies are usually given around 10 working days notice prior to inspection. Public limited companies (PLCs), are expected to make these documents available without notice.
For business owners working from home, or for companies with a small working office, nominating a SAIL may present a better option than having the disruption of the authorities conducting an inspection at the place of work. Directors and members address service - directors and members of registered UK companies are expected to provide the authorities with two addresses: a service address, and their residential location. These are then made public. Any service address must be able to receive Companies House documents and to forward them on within a reasonable period of time.
While there is no reason why a director or member cannot use their residential address as their service address – and in this case, the two addresses would be identical – using the company's registered address ensures privacy for the person in question. Additionally, there may be a need for the person to use a different address other than the company's registered one or that of their own residence.
