The registered office of a Company or an LLP can be changed within the local limits of any city, town, or village where such an office is situated by just giving a notice to the concerned Registrar within 30 days after the date of the change. But a special resolution is required if the change of the registered office is from one village, town, etc., in the same state. Where the place of the registered offices is to be changed from one State to another State, the Company or the Limited Liability Partnership may do so by passing a special resolution and getting a confirmation of the Company Board. The Company or the LLP is also required to give an advertisement in the newspapers indicating the change which is proposed to be made and also a notice that is to be given to the State Government when it is proposed to transfer the registered office from one State to another State.
A change in the company registered office address of the company can, however, be required due to various reasons. Further, the formalities and the process for changing the Registered Office of the Company or the Limited Liability Partnership will depend on if the Company or the LLP is changing its address within the same city/town/village or if the Company is changing the address between city/town/village or if the Company is changing the Registered Office between the States.
