Why would I use someone else's address as my business address?


Hiya, I was told by a friend that I should use another company’s business address as my own, on paper at least. Assuming that’s even allowed, why would somebody want to do that with their business? Thanks a billion



There are lots of reasons why you would use someone else’s address as a business address for your company:

  • You work from home
  • You have no fixed trading address
  • Your trading address is in a remote or undesirable area
  • To create a business presence somewhere other than where your business is based
  • Testing out a new market
  • Expanding your business
  • To boost your credibility
  • To create a professional image

There are many businesses that offer these kinds of professional address services, including company formation agents, virtual office providers and professional secretarial firms.
