Register of directors' residential addresses

What’s a register of directors' residential addresses and when do you need one?

A register of directors' residential addresses is something that you must have in place where you have a limited company.

It contains the key date from which the director is effective and also the residential address of each statutory director that you appoint to help manage the running of your business. A director could be an individual – and usually is – but it could also be a corporate entity too.

The detail in this template covers the residential address information that you're required to keep on record.

Directors may be nervous about this kind of information being disclosed, but it's the law – we recommend that you look at the 'register of directors' template that includes the other information that you are required to keep a record of.

This register is part of our suite of registers, often called the ‘statutory books’, that a limited company must have in place.

Other registers within this suite include:

  • Register of secretaries
  • Register of debentures
  • Register of directors
  • Register of directors' interests
  • Register of members and share ledger
  • Register of mortgages and charges
  • Register of persons with significant control (PSCs)
  • Register of relevant legal entities (RLEs)
  • Register of share applications and allotments
  • Register of transfers

Not all of these will be relevant to your business in its initial stages of setup and development, but many, if not all, of them, will be relevant as your business grows.

You will need to have them in place and to keep them up to date. Some are mandatory from the outset.

Often, accountants and lawyers, advisers, formation agents and/or administrative agencies will offer variously priced services to help you to manage these administrative obligations.

But you can keep them up to date on Farillio yourself for no additional cost.
