How to Get an Address for a Business

This might seem like an odd one. After all, anybody can just use their home address for their business, right? What kind of shady business needs to keep their address secret?

Well, there are quite a few legitimate reasons you might need another address for your business. While you can use your home address that might not be something you want to share with everyone. You might want to keep your address away from grubby marketers. Or perhaps you just want to improve the image of your business with a more “professional-looking” location? With that in mind, I thought we’d cover how to get an address for a business.


It’s actually quite a straightforward thing to do. Simply put, you find a business, like The Office Genie, who offers this service. Assuming you’re happy with all the details, you enter into a contract with them. And that’s pretty much it. From then on, you can use that address as your own.


There may be some conditions in the contract about how you’re allowed to use the address, so make sure you check.


Generally speaking, there are two ways you’d use this address.

The first is as a registered address, so that address becomes the official address for your business. This would be the address that goes up on Companies House. Typically, this is only relevant for incorporated business. Your registered address is where everything from statutory notices to tax bills will be sent.


The second use is much more common, and it’s to use the address only as a postal address.


In both cases, the company offering the address service might also offer services beyond simply being an address and forwarding service. For example, at The Office Genie you can also instruct us to only forward certain post. Or even open some of your post, scan it and email you the scans.


As with most of our services, it’s really up to you. If you’re interested in how to get an address for a business email enquiries@theofficegenie.co.uk or call us on 01604 532 103 and ask for Lesley.
