    Hello,

    In the context of an agreement when we refer at the beginning to the addresses of the parties, can we say that principal office is as registered office meaning domicilio fiscal?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hola, Echaucer:

    yo diría que principal office es oficina principal y que registered office es domicilio social.

    Un saludo

    Hola Begona,

    Quizás sea como lo planteas. Ahora bien, estoy casi seguro que, en algunos casos el principal office, no se refiere necesariamente a la oficina principal de empresas sino a su domicilio social o fiscal, es decir la dirección de registro para efectos fiscales o impositivos.

    Saludos,

    EChaucer

    Si ese es el caso, se trata de lo que se llama domicilio legal, es decir, a donde van dirigidos las facturas, notificaciones y otra correspondencia asociada con la actividad comercial.

    In the US, principal office is not the same as registered office. Principal office is the main office, the headquarters, the primary place of business. The registered office is the office of the registered agent. It can be the same as the principal office. Or, it can be an attorney's office, or a special office just for the registered agent. It is where you serve a Summons and Complaint and other legal process.

    I think you could render "principal office" as oficina central, whereas "registered office" is the venue wher all official correspondence -whether tax or law binding documents- are addressed and the Spanish for that is domicilio fiscal or sede social
