Large Global Companies can benefit from Virtual Office Services too

You don’t have to be based in the UK to use a virtual office service

The use of a virtual office service is accepted globally as an ideal and cost-effective way to test or start up in a new international market. It gives companies a presence in the market, and the opportunity to explore before deciding where to expand permanently.

If you are an overseas company looking to enter the UK market, here are four reasons why you should test the waters with our virtual office service:

An overseas office without leaving your chair – Without having to travel and set up an office in a foreign country, you can give customers the perception that you have a UK office with our virtual office service.

An office without the overheads – The financial costs of running multiple offices, i.e. rent, salaries, utilities and equipment, are high. For a small monthly fee of £24.99 +VAT, our virtual office service offers a comprehensive solution without the high overheads of a conventional office.

Prestigious business address – With our central London address and telephone number, your company will appear more prestigious and more established in the UK than it really is; thereby, enhancing the reputation and credibility of your business.

Efficient communication system – With our virtual office service, we will have your business mail and call messages delivered to you instantly via e-mail, so that you can focus your efforts on the more important things, such as marketing yourself in the UK.

6 reasons why a N1 London address makes your business one of the cool kids on the block

1. Everyone knows where London is. Sounds obvious but having your registered office and mailing address in London says so much in the business world. Of course having a business address anywhere else is fine, but having a London address really makes a statement about your business and aspirations.

Silicon Roundabout

2. “Tech City B**ch, Tech Tech City B**ch”. N1 is where Silicon Roundabout (tech startup city) is based. Data released earlier this month reveals that for the second year in a row, the area has spawned the most new enterprises in Britain. And you simply could not ask for better business neighbours – your postcode will be shared with the likes of Google Campus and Facebook UK as well as endless tech startups including Moo, Funding Circle and Decoded.

3. Be part of London – The Brand. London is a brand in itself. If you want your business to be part of this, a London postcode is obviously necessary. It’s not just about the aforementioned tech hub, London is a world renowned centre for businesses of all shapes and sizes. Continue reading

4 reasons why home workers should use a virtual office

A Virtual Office can provide a number of benefits for the homeworker

Technology has changed the traditional way in which companies conduct their business. Virtual offices are becoming more and more popular, especially amongst home workers as companies shift from the conventional office settings. So how can a virtual office help you and your business function and blossom? Here are 4 reasons why you should use a virtual office:

Privacy of home address

You do not have to expose your private home address because a virtual office will provide you with a mailing address. Therefore you don’t have to display your home address on your website or business cards.


Having a business address allows you to conduct business in a professional manner and give a great impression. A recognisable address and phone number creates credibility.

Efficient business operation

A virtual office handles phone calls, business mail and parcels; essentials needed to run a successful business. This allows you to concentrate on the primary tasks for your business.

Cost effective

The cost of setting up an office can sink your business before it’s even had a chance to succeed. With a virtual office you do not have the burden of managing or renting a real office. It offers many of the benefits of having an office, without all the hassle.

For more information on what we can offer you, take a look at our virtual office packages.

What is a Registered Office?

The Registered Office doesn’t have to be where a company conducts its business

The registered office is the official address of a UK limited company. This address can be any physical address based in the UK (there are rules about moving the registered office between countries) that the company has permission to use.

• It doesn’t have to be where the company conducts its business
• It can be a residential address (as long as the owner of the property has given permission)

Official bodies such as HMRC will send mail to this address; part of the criteria set out by Companies House is that this mail must then be forwarded onto the company director/s if they are not based in the building.

Our Mail Forwarding and Virtual Office Packages do not include a registered office service. If you own a limited company and wish to use our address as your registered office, you can purchase the relevant service here:

Registered Office Service: £45 plus VAT
