I run a company and use my home address as my registered office address. My friend is setting up a company and would like to use my home address as his registered office address (to keep his own confidential). I know there are companies that provide this, but I am happy for him to do so. I wondered if I am allowed to do so - allowing a friend to use my home address as his registered office address. I would do this for free, as a friend - but he has also offered to pay for the privilege. This then looks like he is 'renting' an office space from my home. I wondered if anyone could offer advice on this, as I am thinking about the tax and also premises use/license issues?
