How To Change Your Registered Company Address

aIf you’re a business owner in the UK, you may have considered changing your company’s registered address. Maybe you’ve moved and don’t want to have to update your address with every organization that requires it. Or perhaps you’re just tired of mailing things to an old address. Whatever your reason, we at Clyde Offices can help!

In this article, we’ll discuss how to change your registered company address in the UK. We’ll tell you what documents and information you need and what steps are involved in the process.

Why Change Your Company Address?

At some point, you may find yourself looking to change your company’s address. This could be for several reasons, but it’s most commonly done because you want to move your business to a different city or state.

There are several reasons you may want to change your company address, including:

To Protect Your Brand

If you want to protect your brand name from being misused by others, then changing your registered company address is very important. It will help ensure that no one else can start using your brand name without your permission or being associated with you in any way whatsoever.

Some Companies Won’t Sell to People With an Old Address

Another main reason is that some companies will not sell products or services to people with an old address listed in their database. They want to ensure that the person receiving their product or service is a current customer, so they require a valid physical address.

Business With Multiple Locations

If your business has multiple locations or employees working remotely, then it makes sense for each location and remote worker to have a unique email address that forwards emails to the main inbox (assuming they all use the same email account). This way, everyone gets all their important emails in one place.

Makes It Easy to Find Local Businesses on Google Maps

It’s easier to find your business on Google Maps. When customers search for a local business, they often turn to Google Maps or other mapping applications to find addresses and driving directions. If your business is located in an office building or shared space with other companies, there’s a chance that search engines will show the wrong location for your business. This can be frustrating for customers trying to get directions to your place of business or call ahead for an appointment. By using Google My Business — or another local directory service — you can set up your unique listing with accurate information about your location, including hours of operation and contact information.

Save Money

Besides, helping prevent confusion, changing your company’s registered office can also save money on postage and stationery. If you have multiple offices around the country, for example, it may be more cost-effective to move all your posts into one central location instead of paying for each branch office’s mail separately.

Does The Company Address Matter?

Yes! The registered address of your business is important because it is the place where you receive mail. This can include anything from bills and bank statements to legal documents and invoices.

It’s also important because it’s the address that people will use when they want to contact you. Customers may need to send an invoice or document with a particular address so they know exactly where to send it. At Clyde Offices we can assist with getting a Registered Office address.

How To Change Your Registered Company Address

Changing your registered company address as a virtual office can be a simple process. Still, it’s important to follow the correct procedures to avoid legal or administrative issues. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to change your registered company address.

Step 1: Check the Requirements

Before making any changes, it’s important to check the requirements for changing your registered company address. This information can usually be found on your government’s business registration website or by contacting your local business registration office.

Step 2: Choose a Virtual Office Provider

Next, choose a virtual office provider that can provide you with a virtual address. This provider will receive your mail and forward it to your chosen address. Ensure the provider is reputable and has a good track record of providing reliable virtual office services.

Step 3: Notify Your Current Address Provider

If you’re currently using a physical address for your company, you’ll need to notify your current address provider that you’ll be changing your address to a virtual office. This will ensure that any mail or correspondence is forwarded to your new address.

Step 4: Update Your Business Registration

Once you’ve chosen your virtual office provider, it’s time to update your business registration. This involves updating your company’s incorporation articles, including your new registered office address. You’ll need to submit the appropriate forms and pay any fees associated with changing your registered office address.

Step 5: Notify Your Customers and Suppliers

It’s important to notify your customers and suppliers of your new registered office address. This can be done through your website, social media, or direct mail. You may also need to update your business cards, letterhead, and other promotional materials.

Step 6: Update Your Tax Registration

Finally, you’ll have to update your tax registration with the relevant government authorities. This will ensure that any tax-related correspondence is sent to your new registered office address.

Changing your registered company address as a virtual office is a straightforward process that can help you save money and streamline your business operations. By following these steps, you can ensure that your new address is registered correctly and that your customers and suppliers are notified of the change.

This is a great idea if you have your own business but would like an address in the city centre on top of, or instead of your own address or other location.Allows you to advertise as being based in the city centre.Anytime I had to contact the offices the staff were great and very helpful. I didn't need to contact them much at all because the process is so easy and straightforward.

I hired a mailing address through Clyde Offices for two months and the service was hugely helpful during that time. I rented some camping equipment for my hiking trip and could only find it for mail delivery; because I flew in from the USA, I needed an address in Glasgow and it so happens their office is very near the train station so this plan worked out perfectly as I set out Monday morning for my trip via train. In addition to easy communications and set up, the service worked with me on my order so that delivery time and pick up were arranged and I had no issues arriving and picking up as planned despite an awkward delay between delivery and pick up. My box was also large, which was certainly an inconvenience for them to hold for a week, but they understood my situation. I recommend Clyde Offices if you are seeking a mailing address in Glasgow.

Alan and the team have been a real find for me. They do my reports and deal with all my mail for me. They automatically scan my mail over to me so that I can pick it up on the go, I could not recommend them enough for a small business like me. It's true what they say if you don't have an admin person then you are the admin person!
