Form

Apply to remove your home address from the Companies House register (SR01)

Use this form to apply as an individual under section 1088 to remove your home address, or part of it, from the public Companies House register.

Documents

Details

You can use this form if you are (or were) a:

  • company officer
  • person with significant control (PSC)
  • subscriber or member of a company, LLP, societas Europaea (SE) or eligible Scottish partnership
  • officer or permanent representative of an overseas company

You’ll need to know which documents contain your home address. Check this by finding your company on the Companies House register.

Before you apply, you should read our guidance on restricting the disclosure of your information. Any reference to ‘company’ includes limited liability partnership (LLP) and eligible Scottish partnership.

You cannot ask to remove your company’s registered office address, even if it’s your home address.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

At Companies House, our priority is to protect the welfare of our employees. In response to the potential spread of the virus, we’re following government guidelines.

The quickest way to register your SR01 application is to email us a digital copy. This will allow our teams to process your application without delay.

How to pay the fee

You must pay the appropriate fee using GOV.UK Pay before sending your SR01 application. It costs £32 for each document listed in your application.

Once the payment is complete, you’ll get a payment reference. You must include the payment reference when you send us your SR01 application.

How to send your application

Email your completed SR01 application and the payment reference to dsr@companieshouse.gov.uk.

We will reject your application if you do not provide the payment reference.

 Sending your application by post

You can still post your completed SR01 application with a cheque or postal order - but there may be a delay.

It’s taking much longer than usual to process paper applications because of coronavirus.
