Registered office of a company – a brief / meaning
The registered office of a company is by and large the principal place of business activities conducted by a company. Promoters of the Company decide the State in which the registered office shall be situated at the time of incorporation of the company.Registered office of a company is the main office of the Company to which all communication relating to the company is sent by the governmental departments. The promoters of a company or Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) must declare the registered office of the company during incorporation and maintain certain documents at the registered office.
A registered office is the official address of a company to which all official letters and reminders will be sent by any person, any government or non-government or regulatory body.
