A SAIL address is where a company or LLP can keep its statutory records and make them available for public inspection.

There is no legal requirement to have a SAIL address, it’s optional, but it must be different then the registered office address.

If you decide to use one, you must provide detail of the address to Companies House and tell them what records are kept there.

This information will be placed on the public record.

If you do not use one, you are legally required to keep all statutory records at your registered office.
