    Search 'ukpostbox' on google - I am unable to post the URL.

    I have used their service before - you can do 'pay as you go' which is uncommon for these services. You'll be able to receive mail there - I hope that helps.

    you can get a po box from royal mail, pplease note though if someone asks them for your actual address they are lawfully bound to give it out. As someone else said on the thread virtual offices are another way to go. or you could simply come to an agreement with your lawyer/accountant to use their address like allot of ltd companies do. There is many options but my personal favourite is the virtual office.

    I second this.
    PO box addresses immediately look like PO boxes. It's better to have a "real looking address" so people don't ask too many questions.

    Lawyers and accountants are both allowed to "virtually host" companies. Meaning that you can register your business with their address, and use only this address as your official business address, as if you were actually based in their office (which is of course not actually the case ;) ).

    This agreement of course includes that they will forward your mail to you :)

    This (or virtual office as said above) is the best way to go IMO, and this service is quite cheap.

    Should you require an offshore virtual office (for affiliate cheques/ commission etc.) then you could look at an alternative to the UK and try Gibraltar.

    Check out http://virtual.office.gi

    We updated our URL to http://easy.office.gi as of last week so try this address rather than virtual.

    I'm considering this also as I'm being hammered in Local for not having a central London address.

    I'll probably tap up a couple of mates who have a central address and use that.
