About this set of document

There are three procedures that can be followed under the Companies Act 2006 in order to change the registered address of a company: by directors’ resolution, in members’ general meeting, or by way of written resolution.

This pack provides all the minutes and notices that you need, whichever route you choose.

The registered address is that to where anyone can deliver correspondence, particularly a formal notice or a claim (such as to complete a tax return, or file a confirmation statement). It is not necessarily where the company carries on its business – a trading address.

The registered office address of a business should be in the same country in which the company is registered. A Scottish company may not have its registered office in England or Wales or vice versa. Similarly, an Irish company cannot have its registered office in Scotland. Nor does Companies House accept a PO Box number.

The reason for the change is not important to these documents. You may have moved to larger premises, or you may have changed serviced office providers.

You should remember that as well as following the legal procedure, you also must update your address on your stationery and correspondence, and on your company’s website, and display the company name outside the new address.
