Why use our California business address?
Can you use your home address as your California business address? Is it difficult to change your business address in California? Will using our business address help you gain an edge over competitors?
Yes, you can use your own home address—if you don’t mind your personal address on public filings. Yes, it’s difficult enough to update your business address when you’re running a business. And yes, using our California business address can help you gain an edge over the competition. Below is a rundown of why you might want to use our professional California business address.
You don’t work in an office or commercial building.
Times have changed. People start businesses from all sorts of places. Garages turned shops. Sleek co-working spaces. A sunny table at your favorite coffee shop. It’s a great way to keep costs down, especially when you’re starting out. But that means that when you get to the business address requirement on the California articles of organization or formation, you might be stumped.
Using our permanent California business address benefits you in at least three ways:
- Stability. Our address is a permanent one. That not only means you won’t have to worry about updating your address every time you move but you’ll project an image of stability to your customers.
- Professionalism. Our address is a commercial address. Think about it: If you’re a customer and have to choose between a business that has a residential address or a commercial address, which would you trust? Using our commercial address helps your business legitimacy.
- Mobility. You don’t have to be tied down to a single location. Hire us as your registered agent and use our professional business address so that you can do pursue business in other locations or just live life on the road.
If you order one of our California mail forwarding packages, you’ll get a unique suite number that you can list on your website, business cards, and letterheads. And if you’re looking to really establish yourself without having to rent out an expensive physical office space, check out our California Virtual Office for unlimited mail forwarding, local phone service, and a real month-to-month office lease.
You want privacy.
The business address you provide to the California Secretary of State when you form your business will become part of the public record. This means that if you list your home address, it will be posted on the California Secretary of State’s website. The idea that anyone—customers, clients, total strangers—can look up where you live is enough to make most people uncomfortable.
You hate junk mail.
The address you list on your state filings becomes public information. That means other businesses and salespeople can easily find your address online, and you can expect to get junk mail—and nobody likes junk mail. But when you hire us, you can list our address in place of yours for FREE and avoid much of this headache. Many of our customers say this perk alone is worth the yearly cost of our registered agent service.
You’re busy. Too busy for extra paperwork.
If you list your home address on your California articles of organization or formation, and then you move, you’ll have to update the California Secretary of State on your new business address. To change your business address in California, you’ll have to file a Statement of Information. It’s just one more thing you’ll have to add to your moving to-do list. Hire us, and you can move as many times as you want and you’ll only have to file the Statement of Information during your filing period.
