Some directors have been targeted by criminals such as those trying to steal your identity.
If you used your home address as your service address (or ‘correspondence’ address), you can ask Companies House to:
1. remove it from the register
2. withhold it from credit reference agencies – you can only do this in certain circumstances
You’ll need to apply and pay for each of these separately.
You cannot ask to remove your company’s registered office address, even if it’s your home address.
You can ask Companies House to remove your home address from publicly available documents, such as a form to appoint a director.
You’ll need to know which documents contain your home address. Check this by finding your company on the Companies House register.
Download an application form. It costs £55 to remove your address from each document.
Payment details are on the form.
Send your application form and fee to the Registrar of Companies.

Ask to have your address withheld from credit reference agencies
You can only do this if you’re at risk of violence or intimidation because of your company’s work. You need to provide proof such as:
# a police incident number if you’ve been attacked
# documentary evidence of a threat or attack, such as photos or recordings
# evidence of possible disruption or targeting, such as by animal rights or other activists
# evidence that you work for an organisation whose activities put you at risk, such as the Secret Intelligence Service
Firstly, I recommend that your Accountant signs you up, we will sign up our clients who are above the threshold to avoid potential problems.
Many businesses have found the process confusing because
• They were in the Pilot
• They didn’t realise they needed to register
• They thought the software would do the registration
The best time to register is after you have filed your last pre-MTD VAT return and made payment or had a refund and at least 7 days before the end of the next VAT period.
The reason why this is important is that HMRC need time to switch businesses from old gateway to the new MTD system.
We have had spoken to businesses who registered at the wrong time and found that they either can’t submit returns or Direct Debits or repayments have been delayed causing significant cash flow problems particularly for businesses expecting six figure refunds.
It is important to register for MTD and then register your software.
