Having the necessary business documents stored at a separate location will minimise disruption in the event of an inspection, as the regular operating premises will be able to continue as normal. Although such an event is not to be taken lightly, a well-organised registered office address will speed up the whole process and present a business in the best possible light.
Coddan representatives can also advise limited company owners about the benefits of having a SAIL address (Single Alternative Inspection Location), and this system allows directors and owners to nominate a single external address to act as a premises for inspection.
Any necessary paperwork, documentation and files can be stored there, and arriving inspectors can proceed with minimal disruption to other key areas of the private company. When a business takes advantage of a SAIL setup, they can display the location's address on a plaque where customers enter their premises.
