Mail Boxes Etc. UK & Ireland's blog


Beat Brexit with a UK correspondence address

Trade global, stay local

Brexit has happened, but that doesn’t mean EU-based businesses can’t continue to trade seamlessly with UK customers. Setting up a UK registered business or a British correspondence address will put you in the same economic community as your UK customers, so you can continue to do business with them, on terms they recognise.

A local correspondence address makes sense because you don’t have to maintain a bricks-and-mortar presence in the UK, so you avoid all the overheads while enjoying all the benefits.

Keep your British customers happy

Having a business base within the UK will make selling and supporting your customers easier, across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

With a UK business mailbox from Mail Boxes Etc., (it’s like a PO Box – but better!)  you can use our address for all your business correspondence – a prestigious, professional, business-district mailing address for your website, letterheads, business cards and promotional materials.

If you prefer to set up a UK-based limited company, we’ll allocate a dedicated suite number and you can use our address for your UK trading company.

We will receive all your mail and packages from UK customers, sort and forward it. We will also take delivery of packages from any courier, including signed-for parcels, and hold them until you are ready for us to forward them to your physical address in the European Union. We’ll let you know when something arrives for you, and you can email us to check for deliveries too.

Protect your reputation

People like to do business with local firms. Protect your reputation in a post-Brexit world with a UK business address from Mail Boxes Etc. A virtual office address or business mailbox starts at only £40.00 a month for a minimum rental period of three months*. Our trading terms are crystal-clear and our ID requirements match the standards of UK Revenue and Customs (HMRC) – so you know you’re in safe hands.

If you send direct mail to your UK customers and want to keep postal costs to a minimum, ask about our mail fulfilment services. We can print your files, fold, envelope and post on your behalf.

*Prices and rental periods may vary, dependant on location - check www.mbe.co.uk/mailbox/prices
