The new rules for registered office addresses come into force on 4th March 2024. Companies will no longer be able to use a PO Box as their registered office address. This will apply to all applications for registration of companies from that date.
A requirement for all companies to supply a registered email address will also come into force on the same day, this information will be required in addition to the standard registration information. Chalfen has created a new service (Digital Representation), which will use a monitored email address on behalf of clients to ensure that all notices from Companies House are immediately brought to your attention and forwarded to any person(s) of interest. The cost will be £25 per annum.
An email address for those companies already incorporated will be required to be added at the filing of your next Confirmation Statement. The Digital Representation service will be available as above.
Our understanding is that the email address will be used for notifications of breaches initially, expanding to more intensive use in the future.
