Directors Service Address

Officers of UK registered companies can provide a ‘service address’ to Companies House. The service address is the only address that can be viewed by the public and is often used to keep residential addresses private.

Under the Companies Act 2006 it is possible for a company director to avoid placing their home address on the public section of Companies House registers. Directors can now provide two addresses to Companies House. This can be done when forming a new company, updating directors details with Companies House form CH01 or by filing the annual return form AR01.

Home Address
All directors are required to provide their home address to Companies House. This information can be accessed by Companies House employees, the police, banks, and credit checking agencies that have the required authority. It cannot be accessed by members of the public.

Service Address
Directors can provide a service address ‘in addition’ to the home address. This information is placed on Companies House public records and can be accessed by anyone willing to purchase the information. This address may also be the director’s home address. However, many directors now choose to use their office, their accountants or a service provider’s address instead. This prevents director's home addresses from being added to the online public register.

Avoid making your director’s home address public knowledge

We are pleased to offer our address for use as a director’s service address. If you do not wish to disclose your address when registering a company or want to remove your address from the existing records then simply purchase our service and use our address. Please note this service only covers the receipt and forwarding of official government mail and clearly marked legal mail from legal firms such as solicitors. The service does not permit the directors to use the address as a personal mail forwarding service. We do offer this service as a stand alone service at a higher cost.

How to use our address as your director’s service address.

It is important that you use our address correctly when updating your director's service address at Companies House. The full address to be used is-

Coventry (Midlands) Service Address
London Service Address
Coventry Address[C/O YOUR COMPANY NAME]
DSA The Apex
2 Sheriffs Orchard
DSA Crown House
27 Old Gloucester Street
Edinburgh (Scotland) Service Address
Edinburgh Address[C/O YOUR COMPANY NAME]
DSA Summit House
4-5 Mitchell Street

It is important that you include your company name in the first line of the service address. This will assist us in identifying mail as we may have multiple director’s with similar names using the service.

The director's service address is an annual fee charged per director that wishes to use the address. For example if there are 3 directors in your company wishing to use the address you must purchase 3 service addresses from us.

The directors service address will only be supplied to customers that have a registered office service with SFS and the service address must be at the same address we are supplying as the registered office address. If you do not have a registered address with us then please do not purchase the address as a standalone service for your company as it will have to be cancelled and refunded.

Mail must be forwarded to the same address we forward your registered office mail to. We can not forward Directors Service Address mail to different addresses to the registered office mail. If you want us to forward personal mail for directors this can be setup as a new standalone service at additional cost.

Only official government mail and clearly marked legal mail from legal firms such as solicitors will be forwarded. The service does not permit the directors to use the address as a personal mail forwarding service. We do offer this service as a standalone service at a higher cost.
