All Companies and LLPs in India are required to have a Registered Office in the State where the Company is registered in India. The Registered Office of the Company is where all official letters and reminders will be sent from Ministry of Corporate Affairs.
Books of Accounts
Book of Accounts of the Company or LLP must be maintained at the Registered Office of the Company. If the Company wants to maintain the Book of Accounts at a different place, then the Registrar of Companies must be notified.
The Registered Office of a Company can be a residence also. The Registered Office of a Company doesn’t necessarily have to be a commercial or industrial property. However, the Registered Office of the Company cannot be a vacant land.

Inter-State Change of Registered Office
