What’s the difference between a virtual and a registered office address?
A virtual office address is a trading address that you can use on your website, business cards and other marketing materials. It can be used by any business, whether you are a sole trader, husband and wife team, limited company etc. A virtual office address is especially useful if you work from home but want to project a professional image to your customers.
A registered office address is only applicable to you if you trade formally as a limited company or LLP etc. You are required by law to publicise your administrative address so that anyone that needs to contact your business can do so. Some business owners use their own home address or their accountant’s address for this, but it is quite effective to use a business centre, especially if you combine it with your trading address. It keeps everything neat and tidy!
How much does it cost?
A virtual office address is £96+VAT per year. A registered office address costs £144+VAT per year and includes the virtual office address service at no extra cost if you wish to use it.
