Registered Office Address change

How to change the address of a registered office?

The registered office holds pivotal importance as the central hub for all business-related communications of a company. While a company may establish additional facilities like corporate offices, branches, factories, or administrative offices, it is imperative that the registered office of a company in India is officially registered with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. Unlike other branches, the opening of additional offices by a company does not necessitate prior intimation to the Registrar of Companies (ROC). The location of the registered office in India plays a crucial role in determining the domicile of the company, indicating the state of incorporation. The ROC jurisdiction is determined by the state or location in which the registered office is situated. In the event of a change of address in the registered office, it is mandatory to notify the ROC within 15 days. This notification process ensures compliance with the regulatory requirements outlined in the Companies Act.

Why is the registered office address important?

While incorporating a Private Limited Company it is important to declare the registered office of the Company and to submit the relevant documents. Here is the list of documents to be submitted while declaring a registered office of a company during the incorporation of the company:

Ensuring consistency in information is crucial, and the details on utility bills (electricity, water), property tax receipts, No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the landlord, and the rental agreement should align precisely. Notably, there is no stipulated requirement for the registered office of a company to be situated in a commercial or industrial property. However, it is essential to note that the registered office cannot be vacant land or a building under construction. Surprisingly, the registered office of a company is not confined to commercial spaces and can also be established in a residential property.

In instances where the company has not finalized the registered office during the incorporation filing, the Companies Act, 2013 provides the flexibility to declare a temporary address. This allows companies to proceed with incorporation smoothly, addressing any uncertainties about the registered office location. To comply with regulatory requirements, the company must officially declare the registered office by filing Form INC22 within 15 days of incorporating the company. This provision facilitates a seamless transition for companies, ensuring both operational flexibility and adherence to legal protocols.

How to change the address of the registered office?

Upon the declaration of the registered office of a company through the filing of INC 22, any subsequent changes to this registered office must be promptly communicated to the Registrar of Companies (ROC). Should the change in the registered office address be confined within the same city, town, or village, the company is required to notify the ROC within 15 days by filing the relevant forms.

In the event that the change in the registered office address extends beyond the geographical limits of the current city, town, or village, approval must be obtained through a special resolution passed by the company. Notably, if the change involves a shift from one jurisdiction of an ROC to another, this alteration necessitates approval from the Regional Director of the ROC.

The documents and their verification are detailed in accordance with the terms specified in sub-section (2) of section 12.
