Hoxton Mix offer a company address service for businesses owners, ideal for those who want to use a prime London address when working with their clients.
The service is available from just 41p a day - but why might you want a company address in the UK for your business? Moreover, what exactly are the advantages of registering one?
Widely used across all kinds of sectors, a business address service is simply one aspect of a more comprehensive company formation package. It’s typically seen as part and parcel of a full virtual office service, because all UK businesses need to provide a registered UK address to Companies House.
When you buy a company address service, this becomes the official public address for the business in question (and/or its director). As your service provider, Hoxton Mix will then forward most types of incoming mail aimed at your public company address in the UK to another, non-public postcode of your choosing. This, in a nutshell, is how a company address service works.
There are many helpful advantages to using a company address service, including but not limited to:
Hoxton Mix can provide you with a prestigious central London company address. This gives your business contact page a far more professional and established look than many owners might typically achieve by using their own home (or other office) details.
Although a great deal of modern business is conducted entirely in virtual spaces, there’s something reassuring for clients - and particularly for paying customers - about having a physical contact address they can reach you at. This can make all the difference in terms of client confidence in using the services you’re offering, especially compared to a competing business that only offers initial email contact.
This is particularly ideal for people running a company from home - in most day-to-day business interactions, you’ll be dealing directly with customers and clients that you don’t personally know. Even it’s that’s not the case, it’s always sensible to maintain a clear distinction between personal and professional contacts. Moreover, a company address service gives you a guaranteed reprieve from the unwanted distraction of unannounced drop-ins and speculative visits.
If you’re likely to be switching your main workplace location at any point in the future, using a business address service means you won’t need to contact all your clients individually to inform them of the change in contact details. This saves you a great deal of time, and avoids the risk of anybody not getting the memo - not to mention the real cost savings in terms of any physical rebranding you might otherwise have to do.
The terms and conditions of registering a business with Companies House dictate that all UK businesses must log a public address with a UK postcode. Using a company address service enables you to comply with this part of the process, often using a desirable London address to direct your incoming mail through.
