How can Company Address help my business?

Any business trading in the UK & Ireland needs a registered business address to do so. We provide prestigious city centre addresses in London, Edinburgh and Dublin which can be used to register a business with HMRC and Companies House.

You can also receive mail to your registered address with our mail forwarding and virtual office services, allowing you to boost your brand by promoting a London, Edinburgh or Dublin city centre address.

What sort of address will Company Address provide for my business?

Company Address has four office addresses, in City of London, Central London, Edinburgh and Dublin. Each of these addresses is a real office address in a premium business district. We do not use PO Boxes, meaning you will have a full, real address to use to register or promote your business.

You will receive the full, exact address by email upon registration.

How long does it take to register?

You are registered as soon as you click ‘submit’ on the registration form. Your information will be checked and, by law, we are required to take a copy of your ID and proof of address in compliance with our terms and conditions.

In most cases, your registration will be approved within 1 working day and you can start to use your new address as soon as the approval is confirmed via email.

Can I trust you to keep my information safe and secure?

Yes. We are registered with the UK Information Commissioner’s Office and are bound to follow their guidelines. Keeping your information private is very important to us.

What are Company Address’ fees?

We’re very transparent with our pricing and you can see the price of each service, by location, across our website. Prices shown on our site do not include VAT.

How do I register a business in the UK?

Once you know what structure your business will take and have registered with HMRC for tax purposes, registering the business with the government’s Companies House can be done here. If you want advice on all stages of setting up a UK business, then we recommend the GOV.UK guide here.

What address must a company director provide to register with Companies House?

You must provide a residential address, which will be kept private, and a ‘registered office address’, which is the official commercial address of your business. Companies which don’t yet have a physical, commercial office (i.e. home-based businesses), those which are based overseas and those which would prefer to register with a more prestigious city centre address, can do so using our registered address service.

More information is provided by Companies House here.
