Service Address

This is a new term which came into effect on 1st. October 2009.

Until that date, directors were required to state their usual residential addresses on the forms at Companies House. Now they may state a service address, which may be the company's registered office or some other address where they may be contacted. A director must still notify Companies House of his or her residential address, but this is not put on the public record, though it will be available to public authorities and credit reference agencies. So, when registering a company, the director must state both their service address and their usual residential address (though they may well be the same address).
