Some people consider it sufficient to just have a PO Box address for their new company, instead of having a virtual address, but because a PO Box is not an actual physical address, it is not considered one by the relevant government authorities such as Companies House and HM Revenue & Customs, and indeed they do not permit it. Our registered office addresses are, however, accepted by the authorities as an official trading address.
Our expert consultants can additionally advise clients about having a Single Alternative Inspection Location (SAIL). With this facility, a company limited by shares can have an external address for the purposes of inspections by the authorities. All company documentation and other official paperwork can be kept at that location so that inspectors have ready access to them.
