I'm going through the process on the Companies House website to create a UK company (at http://www.companieshouse.gov.uk/promo/webincs/) and I've got to the page asking for "Details of new director", "Director's service address", and "Director's residential address". It won't let you select both of the following:
- The service address is 'same as' the company's registered office
- The residential address is 'same as' the service address
However, either one on their own is fine. Why is this? Basically they're saying the director's official service address can be the same as the company's registered office, and the company's registered office can be the same as the director's residential address, but all 3 can't be the same at once. Surely if the director's residential address is the same as the registered office, it's a fair bet that that would be the best place to get hold of him with the service address? Why would they wish to prohibit this?
