Protecting your privacy
If you want to hide your residential address then this has to be done when the company is first being setup. If you do not specify a director’s service address your usual residential address will appear on the public record as the correspondence address. If you change a company after incorporation to use a director’ service address the usual residential address will still be available on the original incorporation documents.
It is possible to get an exemption where you can completely hide any addresses from public view but this is rare. Normally this is only allowed for people involved in animal research or other highly controversial businesses where their home might be targeted by protestors. Exemptions can also be gained for businesses which handle large sums of cash and for people in the entertainment industry.
