Technically under the 2006 Act, the registered office address can be determined by either the directors or the members. However, generally this type of operational decision would be considered directors’ business so the location is usually changed by way of a simple resolution of the board.
Step 1 – Decide where the registered office should be.
Step 2 – Convene a Directors meeting for the purpose of changing the registered office address. See draft minutes – Minutes – Change Registered office (2006)
Step 3 – Complete, sign and file the Form IM04 at the Companies Registry.
Step 4 – File the original board minute together with a copy of the Form IM04 in the director’s minute book.
