Registered Office refers to the official correspondence address of the company or its principal place of business. The address of the Registered Office will be used for all official communications with the company. In the course of business, the company may be required to change its registered office for many reasons. It may be due to shifting operations from one place to another, shifting offices within the same city, etc. Since a company is an entity, every change requires compliance with laws and filing of documents.
A company can change its registered office address from one location to another location within the same city by passing a Board Resolution filing address change documents with the Registrar of Companies.
The company must have a new address for changing the registered office. The address need not necessarily be a commercial location and it could be the residential address of one of the promoters or any other identifiable address.
