Business Address vs. Registered Office Address
When you first form a business, you will need to know the difference between your business address and your registered office address.
A business address is the place where the real activity day to day of the company is carried out. This is done via human, physical and technical resources necessary to run the business; so if there are none of these at your business address it is going to be difficult to prove the business is located at that address.
It is important to have a real business address and it is for the purposes of applying for Tax Registration and especially important that you have resources at that address to run the business if you are applying for a VAT number.
Registered Office Address:
A Registered Office Address is a legal requirement when incorporating a limited company. It is an address at which legal notices can be delivered by government & other interested bodies.
You may use your Business Address, or another you have, as your Registered Office Address; but often this address is offered as a service by the company auditors so that they can keep abreast of correspondence from the Companies Registration Office.
The Registered Office Address is usually where a company's register, seal and statutory documents are held. If this is not the case, notification of the location of these documents must be made to the Companies Registration Office.
