Do I need a registered office?

Click here for more information about forming a limited company.

When you form a limited company you will be asked to provide an address to be used as your registered office. Most contractors simply use their home address, but there is an advantage to be gained by using SJD as your registered office as we can receive all correspondence direct from Revenue & Customers and Companies House on your behalf.

Dealing with business correspondence is, although routine, an important part of successful contracting, particularly when dealing with HM Revenue and Companies House documents.

SJD Accountancy offers a service through which you can use our registered office address. SJD receives all company mail and processes it for you making you aware of any urgent information either by telephone or email. Not only this, but your accountant can directly action HM Revenue and Companies House documents leaving you as a contractor free to generate more business without the hassle of postal administration.

For £100 plus VAT per annum, SJD will act as your filter stopping unwanted and unnecessary post from arriving at your home address.
