What are UK rules for setting up a business and what do you need by the way of a registered office address?

Looking for a Virtual Office to be proud of in Gloucester or the South West?  We have the answer.  With all the right credentials and facilities, your business can be based in the centre of Gloucester City. Three minutes’ walk from the train station, City Centre  and Gloucester Rugby Club you can meet your clients here or just simply have your post forwarded to your home or other business address.

  1. Choose your business structure: You need to decide whether you want to operate as a sole trader, partnership, or limited company.

  2. Register your business: You must register your business with Companies House if you plan to operate as a limited company. You also need to register for tax with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

  3. Set up a business bank account: You need a separate business bank account to manage your finances.

  4. Get any necessary licenses and permits: Depending on your business type and industry, you may need specific licenses and permits to operate.

  5. Obtain business insurance: Consider getting insurance to protect your business, such as public liability insurance or professional indemnity insurance.

Regarding the registered office address, every limited company in the UK must have a registered office address. This is the official address of the company and is used for all communication with Companies House and HMRC. The registered office address must be a physical address in the UK, and it must be included on all official company documents and websites. You can use your own address, or you can use a registered office service provider that will provide you with an address for a fee.
