Provision of the registered office address and SAIL address for the UK establishment: how to acquire legal addresses for your UK establishment? All British, Scottish and Irish establishments require a registered office address, which is the official address for correspondence from HMRC and Companies House. This address will appear on public record and should feature on your establishment's paperwork. It must be a UK based postal address and not a PO Box address.
If you would prefer to keep your company's address private, you can use our registered address service, which includes the forwarding of all mail from our registered office to your chosen address. We can either forward your mail to you by post or scan your mail and send it to you via email. To ensure you comply with your legal obligations, we will also display a sign detailing your company's name and country of incorporation at our registered office address.
If you have already registered your UK establishment, you can still take advantage of our registered office address service. Simply tell us where your limited company was registered and we will arrange for you to use one of our registered office addresses. We will even inform Companies House and HMRC about your address change so you will do not have to take time out of your busy schedule to notify them in person.
Under the Companies Act 2006, you are obliged to retain a range of registers and records for your company. If you do not wish to keep these at your registered office address, we can provide you with a single alternative inspection location (SAIL) address in the same country as your registered office address. You will then be able to use this address to store your private company's records and registers. Additionally, if someone wishes to view your records and registers, they will be able to visit your SAIL address for this very purpose.
If you choose to use one of our SAIL addresses after registering your limited company, we will notify Companies House and HMRC on your behalf. We will also assist you in including your SAIL address on your annual return, together with the details of the records you are storing there.
