When Do I Need to Register My Business With Companies House in the UK

When Do I Need to Register My Business With Companies House?

by | Apr 9, 2023

Suppose you’re starting a limited company or limited liability partnership (LLP). In that case, you’re legally required to register with Companies House, and you need to do this within three months of starting your business to be trading legally. 

As part of this process, you’ll need to register an address for your business. When you’re starting out, you’ll likely be working from home – but that doesn’t mean you have to use your home address. Many people opt to use a virtual office to protect their privacy and boost their business with a professional postcode. 

You should register your business with Companies House as soon as it starts operating or becomes liable for corporation tax, if you choose Impact Brixton as your virtual office you’ll be able to use our location in Brixton Village as your official company address. So when people look your company up, that’s what they’ll see – a professional London postcode, in a vibrant business hub. 

This also means that you can avoid putting your home address on the Companies House website, keeping it hidden from customers, clients and suppliers. All official correspondence (including anything from HMRC or Companies House) will come to us. You can then collect it or arrange for it to be forwarded to you at a small extra cost. 

As Impact Brixton is a social enterprise, you can also be sure that any money you spend with us is being put towards supporting the business community in Lambeth. It’s an easy way to do some good while chasing your dream. 

If that all sounds good, you can sign up to Impact Brixton’s virtual office now. And as a welcome gift, we’re currently offering everyone 50% off your first six months of ALL our Virtual Office packages! This discount is applied automatically when you get to the checkout – no need for a discount code.
