What is a Business Address and Why Do I Need One?

When starting a business there are many things to consider. Where should I get my supplies from? How do I target my prospective clients? What should my website look like? While all of these questions are pertinent to your startup, there remains a question that sometimes gets overlooked: What address should I use for my business? This question may seem unimportant at the time, but it should not be overlooked. Here we will answer a few common questions about a business address and why your business needs one.


What is a Business Address?

A business address is a physical location where you are able to register your business. This allows you to receive mail/packages for your business. A business address is not a P.O. Box, so your customers will know your business operates in a professional office building. While your business may not necessarily operate out of the address you choose, you’re still allowed to register it under the location that you decide.


Why Do I Need a Business Address?

You might be thinking what is the purpose of having the business address? Is it really necessary? Well there are numerous benefits to owning a professional business address. One reason is to register your business, you need an address. If you utilize a professional business address this upgrades your business image. You can put the new address on your website as well giving you a professional look. Another reason is that using a business address protects your privacy. Having customers and random people show up at your home can be scary and a nuisance. Keeping your home address private is a great reason to upgrade your business to a new address. Lastly, a P.O. Box is not recognized as an address to register your business, so while it may be cheaper you cannot officially register your company at that location.
