The registered office is an official address where a company is incorporated or registered. All the official communications made to the company are addressed to the registered. In addition to a registered office, a company can have a corporate office or administrative office or branch office or factory, etc., however, only the registered office of the Company needs to be registered with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs.

The registered office of the Company must then be declared by filing INC 22 within 15 days of incorporation of the Company.
