Can I Use the 20 Wenlock Road Registered Office Service if My Company Wasn’t Formed by You?

Absolutely. Our Registered Office service, which operates from our own offices at 20 Wenlock Road, London, N1 7GU – can be used by any England and Wales limited company, even if it wasn’t formed by us. This is provided that you pass on the necessary proof of ID and proof of address documents needed to comply with the Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations.

Our Registered Office service is perfect for…

Protecting your home address from the public register

Whilst you are allowed to use a residential address as the registered office, many people choose not to do this as the registered office is on the public register. This means anyone can easily find it out. Because of this, and to prevent unexpected visitors turning up on their doorstep, company directors will often provide an alternative address as the registered office.

Giving a great impression to your customers and contacts

The registered office is the official address for a limited company; the home of the business. The address you use says a lot about your operation. By using a residential address you could give the impression that your business is ‘small-time’ or ‘amateur’. With a registered office based in a renowned startup area you’re showing that you really mean business. What’s more, with our meeting rooms, you can host business meetings at the address.

Dealing with rental issues

Landlords are not always happy for their property to be used as a registered office. Even if they are – having to change your registered office every time you move house is a hassle. With the Registered Office service you can give your business a stable home that will only change if you want it to.

Putting an end to junk mail

Because the registered office is on the public register, you’re going to receive junk mail. As part of your Registered Office service we’ll sift through this mail and forward on only official government mail  – with no charge for postage.
