I am in the process of setting up a new limited accountancy services business and like many, am reluctant to use my home address as the registered address.
I've been around a few offices and 'shared spaces' to scope out whats around and the virtual mailbox option seems a sensible route for the time being - my question is therefore, if I register as an agent with HMRC for my clients, does post get sent to my registered address, and if so, what will the envelope say? So say, I'm ABC Ltd acting for client XYZ Ltd - will post be addressed to myself, ABC Ltd, or to my client, XYZ Ltd.
You probably see where I'm going with this - 'shared spaces' and 'virtual addresses' are great, as long as the post is addressed to my company. If its addressed to my clients, it makes it awkward at best, some offices have said they would have they would have to set up a whole new virtual address for my clients for it to work i.e. £50+ per month!
One thing I don't intend doing is allowing my clients to use my 'office' as their companies registered address - I know this will cause problems. Its just the how it works as an agent that I'm interested in.
Thanks for your help in advance.
