Registered Office: Business Comes This Way

By: Darvy Kaitlin

A registered office is the company address notified to the Companies Registry. This is where the the company's records are normally kept. It is a rule by the Companies Act 1985 for this address to be quoted on all company correspondence and also on the company letterhead and other products of the company. Other legal obligations include displaying the name of the company outside the office.

The good thing is that your registered office need not be the place your organisation conducts its business from. And also stands to great benefit for your business besides being a mandatory requirement. This address helps you do better business in several ways. First of all, higher visibility of your company by virtue of a famous and prestigious office address builds a good image for your business. Needless to say, it attracts more customers. The prospect and profit of your business is thus multiplied when you get natural publicity by the very location of your office address.

These days, for all those who may not find it feasible to have an office space in a busy commercial area, registered office is a special service provided by many specialised firms for the benefit of the small-office owners. The other beneficiaries of these services are the overseas businessmen, who want to carry on business in the United Kingdom, and it is thus a welcome service for them.

A registered office works for your business in two ways: first of all, as a standard official address, and secondly, for boosting your business prospects. Apart from this, mail forwarding service which you get alongwith the famous address, is an added convenience.
