Why a CS Notepad Virtual Address is Better than a PO Box

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

This year the annual cost of renting a PO Box from the Royal Mail increased to £170, up from £95 the previous year. This latest price increase is equivalent to around a 170 % increase over two years.

PO Boxes are relied on by many home based businesses and sole traders to keep business and personal correspondence separate, as well as those who wish to keep their home address private. Another reason that separate correspondence addresses are popular is security. If you are away from home a lot it’s safer and more secure to have your mail delivered to a virtual office.

The advantages of using a CSnotepad virtual address service instead of a PO Box are many. If you are local to Brighton it is possible to collect your mail, just like you do with a PO Box. PO Boxes are linked to your street address, and so if you move, your Box is cancelled and you have to apply for a new one in the new postal area. This isn’t an issue with a virtual address. In addition, and contrary to popular belief, PO Boxes aren’t fully private, as the address of the Box holder is held on a public database.

PO Boxes won’t accept mail from other carriers or couriers. With a CSnotepad Virtual Address it is possible to receive parcels which can be collected by you or forwarded to you by a courier service.

Finally, with a Limited Company plan from CSnotepad it is possible use your virtual address service as your registered office address at Companies House by registering the address with Companies House as an office address at which you can be served official papers. 

CSnotepad also offer a ‘Prestigious Address’ service which allows you to have your company registered at an address in either London’s media hub Soho Square, the prestigious West End or modern business hub Canary Wharf.
