The location of your registered office
It is a good time for company directors to be familiar with the location of their registered office. For many court documents, effective service on a company is service at the company’s registered office. This may be your business address or your accountant’s address (or some other address that you are not aware of or an address that is no longer current).
This time of the year is notorious for solicitors serving notices that carry very strict time limits, like creditor’s statutory demands for payment, or lapsing notices on caveats.
If you or your accountant are taking holidays in the Christmas period, ensure that someone is checking the mail on a daily basis, and that you can be notified immediately if any important documents are sent or served.
Although Osborn Jensen is closed during the Christmas break, Tim or Christie can be contacted by mobile to deal with any urgent matters. We also have a number of barristers on standby if they are required over the break.
