Frequently Asked Questions

How does a Virtual Business Address work?
A Virtual Business Address can be used where you would show your place of business. For example, on your website and stationery.
When business mail is received, we forward this to you or, if preferred, open the mail and scan and email it to you. Personal mail will not be forwarded.
Can I use a Virtual Business Address for my Registered Office Address?
Our Virtual Business Address cannot be used as a Registered Office Address or Director Service Address. However, if you purchase our package Virtual Business Plus, this can be used as your Virtual Business Address, Registered Office Address and Director Service Address.
How frequently is mail forwarded?
The frequency at which mail is forwarded or scanned and emailed is up to you. Most of our Virtual Business Address clients choose to have their mail forwarded weekly; however, you can choose to have it forwarded daily, weekly or monthly.
By default, your account will be set up for us to forward your received business mail daily. If you prefer a different frequency or would like your mail scanned and emailed to you, simply let us know and we will update your account.
Can I collect mail from your office?
Yes. All we ask is that you let us know when you are coming in so we can ensure your mail is ready for collection. Mail collection is not available from our 101 Rose Street South Lane, Edinburgh office.
Is there a charge for mail forwarding?
The cost of forwarding business mail to you by 1st Class mail is £0.20p per item + postal charges. We do not get proof of postage for mail.
Can I use your address on my ‘Google My Business’ profile?
No, unfortunately our virtual office locations are not eligible for a 'Google My Business' profile on Google. However, other smaller online business directories might allow our locations to be used.
How does the Telephone Answering Service work?
We will give you an Edinburgh (0131) phone number which you can either use as your own number or you can divert calls to it when you are busy. When your number is called, we answer it in your company name. We then let the caller know that the extension is busy, you are in a meeting or calls are going to voicemail (or anything else as instructed by you). We will take a message and their contact information, which are all immediately uploaded to your online admin account and sent to you by email and via the MYCO smartphone app.
What days and hours does your Telephone Answering Service operate?
Our Telephone Answering Service operates between 9am-5.30pm, Monday to Friday. (excluding bank holidays)
Does my contract automatically renew at the end of my 12-month term?
No, we do not automatically renew any of our services. We send a renewal email approx. a month before an annual renewal is due. These are followed by several reminders if action has not been taken.
What ID do I need to supply?
You are required to supply proof of your ID (passport, driving licence photocard, government-issued ID card, HM Forces ID card, valid Student card, employment ID card, disabled driver blue badge) and proof of address (utility bill, bank statement, mortgage statement, HMRC Notice of Coding) within seven days.You will be shown where to upload your ID once your order is complete.
How do I start?
Simply select the required combined package, complete the order form, and make the payment online using Worldpay. Once we have your order, your account will be active and ready to use. As soon as you have submitted your order, check your emails, as you will receive an automatic email confirming your order and the correct address to use.
Do you accept parcels?
We accept 1-2 parcels a month, no bigger than a standard shoebox (approx. 35cm x 25cm x 13cm) and no heavier than 2KG at 167-169 Great Portland Street, 85 Great Portland Street and 7 Bell Yard (London), 50 Princes Street (Ipswich) and 64a Cumberland Street (Edinburgh).
