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.
