UK Virtual Offices
Our virtual office service is the perfect solution for businesses that want to operate digitally. Get a unique virtual office address in the UK and manage your company's mail correspondence through our platform.
What is a virtual office?
A virtual office is an address that businesses can use in a similar way to a traditional office. The key difference is that the office is virtual, meaning it’s not a physical location for businesses to work from or visit. Businesses will be provided with a unique virtual address to use instead of their office location, and through our online mail management platform, they’ll be able to read and manage any of the post sent to their business.
What can you use your virtual office address for?
Businesses utilise virtual offices for many different purposes and processes. It’s up to you which features and services you take advantage of, but as a general rule you can use your virtual office in the same way you would a physical office (minus the physical space and costs!). Some of the ways companies are using virtual offices are for:
Business address needs
Use your virtual office address as your registered office, business trading, directors’ service and business correspondence address.
Improve how efficiently your workforce reads and responds to business communication that comes via mail.
Run marketing campaigns using your virtual office address and receive all entrants, returns and other mail responses in one place.
Remove the need for a physical office space and provide more flexibility for your team. Workers can access business post from wherever they are using our platform.
Reduce mail management costs
You’ll no longer need the equipment, stationery, office space or personnel to receive and distribute mail across the business.
Set up custom workflows to instantly share mail with the team members who need to see it. Send custom alerts and integrate with cloud storage solutions.
Centralise all business mail into a single location and system, making it easier and cheaper to process and manage business post.

Virtual office automations & integrations
All of our virtual office customers can take advantage of our automations and platform integrations to improve their efficiencies. When we scan new mail for you, we can alert individuals or entire teams that something needs their attention. This reduces the time between receiving post and taking action, and when combined with our cloud integrations, you can make mail management easy for your entire team.
Your privacy is our priority
Protecting your business and its employees' personal information is of the highest importance. Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we’re forbidden from sharing your information, and if we’re ever asked to, we’ll alert you straight away.
