UK Limited Company Registered Office – England, Scotland, Northern Ireland & Wales

Last Updated: 05/09/2014

There are some limitations on a UK limited company’s registered office regarding changes to the address.

If a company is formed with a registered office in England, all future registered offices must be based in either England or Wales. This is the same for a company formed in Wales.

A company formed with a Scottish registered office can’t move the registered office outside of Scotland. The same goes for Northern Ireland; a company formed with a Northern Ireland registered office can’t move the address out of Northern Ireland.
