FreeAgent Assure Accountancy Service

Our FreeAgent Assure Accountancy Service supports FreeAgent users who are in control of their business finances but need the peace of mind support from an accountant to help them meet their filing obligations & keep up to date with the latest rules.

Best of all you just pay a small annual fee rather than regular monthly charges which means you'll probably save money on your current accountancy fees.

Our service offers a great alternative for those needing a UK based registered office address. We offer a registered office address in Preston.

Our service includes mail forwarding of statutory post including correspondence from HMRC and Companies House.

Mail received at our office is sorted and redirected to promptly. Any notices served are redirected immediately.

Please note that you cannot use the registered office address service as the accommodation address for your company, nor for any trading, correspondence or advertising purposes.

We do not forward obvious junk mail.

What is a registered office?

A registered office address is the official address of a limited company.

It is the place where Companies House and HMRC will often send notices, letters and reminders but it does not have to be the main place of business. Every limited company must have a registered office.

It is imperative that the registered office address is kept up to date and that an arrangement is made to have mail forwarded from that address to the address of someone dealing with the administrative matters of the company.

What address can I use?

The registered office must be a physical location so this means you cannot use a mail box number (i.e. PO Box). Apart from that you can use any address as the registered office, assuming you have relevant permission to do so e.g. if you are in rented accommodation many leases will prohibit use of that address as a registered office.

The registered office can be anywhere in England and Wales. Companies registered in Scotland must have the registered office in Scotland.

I don't want to use my home address

Many companies will not want to use an owner's home address for their registered office so they choose to use a registered office service.
