Removing a home address from the public register
19/05/2020

Company directors and other eligible people such as company secretaries, people with significant control (PSC) and LLP members can apply to remove their personal addresses from the UK’s official company register on Companies House.

Company directors and others are still required to provide an alternative correspondence address if they are appointed to a live company. If they are no longer appointed to a company, then an alternative address is not required and only the first half of their postcode will be made available to the public. The option to remove your home address from the public register is not available if the home address is the same as the company’s registered office address.

There is a charge of £55 per document where a director wants to suppress their home address. During the COVID-19 outbreak, the fee should be paid online before the application is submitted. The quickest way to proceed is to email a copy of the SR01 application to Companies House. This will allow Companies House to process the application without delay. Applicants can still send a completed SR01 application by post, but it is taking Companies House much longer than usual to process paper applications due to Coronavirus.
