New rules at Companies House

If you are a company director, from the 1 October 2009 you can protect your home address from disclosure.

If you would like take advantage of this new concession you need to register a service address, which could be your registered office address, with Companies House. This can be done online www.companieshouse.gov.uk from the 1 October 2009. All clients can use our address as their registered office, although this is for Companies House and HMRC correspondence only and not for general business purposes.

If you take no action your home address will be taken as your service address until changed.

Just a quick reminder that other recent changes include:

1. You must be aged 16 or over to be appointed as a director.

2. You no longer have to appoint a company secretary, although you can do so if you wish.

3. You no longer need to hold an AGM unless you opt to do so.
