Registered Office Address
Every Irish company must have a Registered Office Address (ROA) at which official documents can be served and this address should be displayed on all business letterheads of the company.
This is the official address of your business where all official documents are served. This does not have to be your trading address but it must be located in Ireland, residential addresses are permitted. The registered office address must be a physical location, P.O. Box numbers are not permitted as a registered office.
The Registered Office of your company is the address for your company which is recorded with the Companies Registration Office. Official documents, such as documents from the courts, are served on a company at its registered office and official correspondence is usually sent to the registered office, for example official letters from the Revenue Commissioners and the Registrar of Companies.
The provider of your registered office address is very important since as they receive all documents from both the Revenue Commissioners and the Companies Registration Office and should be capable of advising and or dealing with such official correspondence.
Please note that this address should not be used for any trading purposes or general correspondence, or for any form of advertising. The address is only to be used to comply with the requirements of the Companies Act 2014 in relation to official mail and documents.

All official communications with the company are issued to the company at its registered office. This includes strike off notices and annual return reminders. Any change of registered office should therefore be notified to the CRO without delay following the change.
It is the address of a company to which CRO correspondence and all formal legal notices addressed to the company will be sent. The registered office can be anywhere in the State. The address must be a physical location, not just a post office box number, because people have the right to visit the company’s registered office to inspect certain registers and documents and to deliver documents by hand.
A company notifies its change of registered address by sending a completed Form B2 within 14 days of the date of the change to the CRO.
