What is a registered office address?

When setting up a company in Ireland, you are legally required to have an Irish registered office address with the Companies Registration Office (CRO). All of your company’s legal notices and correspondence from the CRO will be sent to this address.

Your company’s registered office must be a physical location, you can not use a Post Office box for the address. This is because people are entitled to visit your companies registered office to inspect certain registrars and company documents, as stated here by the CRO.

This address is shown on the CRO website, which is available to the public. You must include this address in the forms to set up your company, but it can be changed at a later date.
