What is a virtual office address?

A virtual office address is a postal address for your business. Rather than using your home address on business cards, official documents or as your registered address for HMRC, a virtual office allows you to use the address of a pre-established office. This can help elevate your corporate presence as it provides your business with a prestigious headquarters address, which can enable you to compete with established local competitors.

What’s more, a virtual office can act as a mailing address for your business, with any post sent to your company either forwarded on to your home address or held for you to collect. As part of a virtual office package, you can also get a local landline number and telephone answering service – giving you everything you could possibly need to compete with your competition, while keeping costs low.

Business in the 21st-century doesn’t require you to work from a permanent location – so why do it? Instead, make the most of a virtual office by marketing your business effectively while enjoying significant cost savings on traditional office rents.

Telephone answering service vs a full-time receptionist

Our telephone answering service is great value for money and is the perfect way to ensure any incoming customer calls are handled promptly and professionally. Transferring calls to your mobile or landline is free, as are messages by email or text if you’re not available to accept our call transfer.

What’s more, our telephone answering service in Exeter never gets sick, never misses a call, never takes a holiday… you get the idea.

Registered office address Exeter

All UK limited companies are required to provide a registered office address that is displayed on the public register. Your registered address is used by HMRC and Companies House to communicate with your business.

Our two virtual office locations in Exeter can be used as your company registered address, for just an additional £7.50 per month.

Many companies use their accountants or their physical office premises as their registered address, but for new and small businesses it can be tempting to use your home address. However, there are many downsides to this:

Each time you move to a new house your registered address also has to change. If you forget to change your address or are delayed in changing it, you could miss important mail from HMRC and face serious financial consequences.

Your home address is available for any member of the public to see – which means customers and suppliers will know where you live. This could cause problems in the event of a dispute with a supplier. 

Money laundering regulations

The Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds Regulations 2017 impose a number of obligations on registered service providers. It’s our responsibility to ensure we confirm the identity of any clients wishing to use our virtual office services in Exeter.

We require two forms of personal identification if you’re a sole trader, and if you are operating a limited company, we require identification for all shareholders within the business.

Your identification documents can be sent to us via email, either as scans or clear pictures from a smartphone. They are then electronically verified through a soft credit search, which confirms your date of birth, address and provides us with a robust picture of your identity. No credit imprint is left on your credit report and the information we receive is only used in confirming your identity to comply with money laundering regulations.

This process ensures that both you as a business and Virtual HQ are compliant, but also it ensures that you will only ever share your address with other respectable and genuine businesses. Your reputation could be hurt greatly if we allowed unchecked individuals to share your address, and we take our responsibilities to you seriously.
