For companies and LLPs there are two ways to change registered office address-
Most limited companies and LLPs submit most documents to Companies House using the electronic filing service. It is quick, secure and avoids errors. This will require registration online to use the Companies House website. Once registered for electronic filing you can file form AD01 in electronic format which is usually processed within a few hours.
Manual Filing – Paper Forms
The traditional way of changing your registered office is to complete form AD01 and send this by post to Companies House in-
- Cardiff (for English and Welsh registration)
- Belfast (for Northern Irish registrations)
- Edinburgh (for Scottish registrations)
Form AD01 simply requires your company name in full, your company number, the new address and the signature of a company officer. It is typically signed by a company director or secretary (or partners for an LLP). The postal application to change a registered address is normally accepted within approximately 7-10 working days.
