Five users, just one account, a full parcel service, free forwarding and product returns... and still only 55p a day!
You need a Business mailbox if you intend to use it commercially or for business mail. As a guide, business mail means any item sent from Companies House or addressed to a Company name (eg; ABCDE Ltd.), or with a corporate office (eg; Accounts, The Secretary, M.D. etc.) or a brand (eg; Gifts 4 Me) as part of the incoming address.
If you only need a mailbox for personal or family correspondence such as household bills, letters, on-line shopping, birthday cards, bank & credit card statements etc. then a Private account is probably right for you.
identical account fees & features
At exactly the same price as a Private account, your Business mailbox can also be used to receive mail for up to five different named Users with unlimited handling, free international forwarding and junk mail filtering, PLUS; if you hold a 12 month account you can also use your Business mailbox as the registered office address for any Company of which you are a Director, at no extra charge!
including a free junk mail filter
Junk mail is time consuming and annoying for any business... but when using a mailbox service, it can also prove to be expensive.
We can filter out junk mail before you incur handling fees... and we don't just remove the obvious junk, you can list up to five senders from whom you do not wish to receive post. So long as the sender is obvious, we will remove them from your mailbox competely free of charge!

how your uk mailbox address will appear
Your accommodation address is made up from any one of your account User names, followed by the mail Centre's physical address (Smith Consulting Ltd is the mailbox User in this example).
Department or role titles such as 'The Managing Director' can appear before the User name and are ignored by the system... and you can omit 'Dale' to create a shorter form of the address.
simple identification process
Because all Business mailboxes are registered with an individual as the Account Holder, all you will ever need to submit as a sole trader or partner is one photo ID, your date of birth and one proof of residential address (plus your trading address, if it is different).
adding more users to your account
If you add an individual as a named User, no further ID verification is required.
Whilst you can start using your accommodation address as soon as you register, you must send the required ID documents via the upload form in your secure control panel before any mail can be forwarded. You have a whole week to complete verification (which usually takes less than 24 hours)... then all features of your account will be activated automatically.
acceptable use & restrictions
The registered Account Holder is solely responsible for the use of the mailbox and ensuring that it is not used to transport goods that are explicitly prohibited by the Royal Mail, or to misrepresent the mailbox address for the purpose of fraud. If in doubt, you may wish to take a moment and read the legal FAQs at the bottom of this page.
fully inclusive costs
Business mailbox accounts are priced at £90 for the temporary 3 month option (ideal for short term campaigns), £150 for 6 months, or £200 for a full year... that's just 55p a day, much cheaper the a Royal Mail numbered PO Box with no forwarding included.
