19 Mar Difference Between Registered & Service Office Address
What is a registered office (RO) address?
All companies must have a registered office, which must be situated at a physical location in their country of registration. It can be your business address, the address of your accountant, or any other address you choose. However, it must be an address at which you will be able to deal with all official letters and notices that you receive.
What is the Service Address?
When a company incorporated, a director must include their residential address and a service address. The service address will be on the public record at Companies House; the residential address will be protected information and is not available to the public (although it is available to some public authorities). Shareholders and secretaries only need to supply one address – a service address.

Many directors, company secretaries, and shareholders only have one address – their residential address – so this is the address they use as their service address at Companies House. This means that their residential address Visible on the public record at Companies House. By using our Service Address service, directors, company secretaries and shareholders can keep their residential address confidential as our UK address will be shown instead of their residential address.
