With a business postal address you can easily separate business and private life

One of the most important reasons for taking a business postal address is the separation of business and private life. Certainly for entrepreneurs who do not have a fixed office address or work from home. After all, you don’t want an angry customer knocking on your front door… With a business postal address from PriPost you have more privacy and you can close the door at home with peace of mind.

A business postal address or an address for registration at the Chamber of Commerce

These two things are regularly confused, but they are not the same.
An address for registration at the Chamber of Commerce is for establishing your business at that location. When you register your company at the Chamber of Commerce, you must enter both a postal address (also known as correspondence address) and a business/registered address (also known as a visiting address). These addresses can be the same but don’t have to.

  • The postal address is the address where you want to receive your mail. For this you can use the addresses of PriPost.
  • The registered address is the address where your company is located. As a rule, the Chamber of Commerce states that the activities of your company must (largely) take place from this location. So there must really be room for you to work at this location. If you also want to use the address of PriPost as a registered address, you must enter into an additional agreement with PriOffice.

The costs of a business postal address at PriPost

PriPost is the cheapest provider in the market and you already have a business postal address for 5 euros a month. Depending on the amount of mail and how you want it to be processed, the costs for scanning and / or forwarding the mail are added. Look here for the complete overview of our rates.

For a registered business address PriOffice is also the cheapest provider in the Netherlands. You already have a registered address for less than 30 euros a month. However, this option is offered exclusively for PriPost customers. So apply for a Postbox first and arrange everything today!

Many people who stay abroad for a short or longer period of time will process their mail by us.

What is UBO statement and why does PriPost need it?2019-07-12T22:44:05+01:00
WHO IS THE UBO AND WHY DOES PRIPOST NEED TO KNOW IT?
WHO IS THE UBO AND WHY DOES PRIPOST NEED TO KNOW IT?

The U.B.O. (Ultimate Beneficial Owner)

PriPost is obliged to identify the Ultimate Beneficial Owner (UBO) in accordance with the Sanctions Act to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing. This prevents people from hiding themselves behind legal entities. The Sanctions Act requires us to check background data of our customers. It is about determining the “Ultimate Beneficial Owners” (UBO) of our business customers.

  1. What is a UBO?
    • UBO stands for Ultimate Beneficial Owner.
    • A UBO is is a natural person who holds at least 25% shares or has control over the non-listed legal person;
    • or who is a beneficiary or has special control of 25% or more of the assets of a foundation or trust.
  2. Your company, association or foundation does not have a UBO but a director. What needs to be filled in?
    Do you have the legal form private company, limited partnership, limited company or partnership? Then we ask you to fill in one or more Ultimate Beneficial Owner (s) statements with a 25% shares. Do you have the legal form early childhood education, association, foundation or church society? Then we ask you to fill in the director (s) in the UBO statement. If you have a sole proprietorship, you are a natural person or do not have a UBO with shares of 25% or more, then signing the UBO statement is sufficient.
  3. What does the Sanctions Act entail?
    The Sanction Act is focused on preventing money laundering and terrorist financing. The Sanction Act 1977 forms the legal basis for national rules for the implementation of international sanctions. Due to the increasing political tensions since the conflict in Ukraine and the MH370 flight disaster, the European Union and the United States have imposed sanctions against persons and entities involved in this conflict. The Dutch financial sector, including PriPost as provider of addresses, has an important function as “gatekeeper” in the implementation of these sanctions. The regulatory authorities also expect us to do business with reliable parties.
  4. Why is PriPost asking me for the UBO data now, even though I have been a customer for a long time?
    PriPost has not yet registered the Ultimate Beneficial Owners (UBO) of all (old) customers. This means that it cannot be determined whether these customers appear on a sanction list. This is in violation of the Sanctions Act. When accepting new customers, we immediately request the required information. For existing customers, for whom we have not asked these acceptance questions in the past, we still need to determine and screen the UBO data against the Sanction Lists. Our supervisory authorities are currently monitoring stricter compliance with the Sanctions Act.
  5. Are there consequences if I do not provide a UBO statement?
    If we do not receive the UBO statement from you, we cannot check the background data. If you do not respond, it may mean that we have to terminate the PriPost agreement. Of course we would prefer not to do it. That is why it is important that you fill the UBO statement correctly in and upload it as quickly as possible via the customer portal.
  6. I have several Postboxes. Is one UBO statement enough?
    Each UBO statement is made for one company. In case you have several companies, a UBO statement will have to be drawn up for each company, regardless of the number of Postboxes. If you have several Postboxes for one company, then you only have to upload one UBO statement.
  7. My company is not based in the Netherlands
    It is irrelevant for the law where a company is located. A UBO statement must also be provided for companies established abroad.
  8. Where can I find the UBO statement?
    You can easily download this via the following link: https://www.pripost.eu/download/pripost_ubo_statement.pdf
    After completion and signature, you can upload it as a PDF in the customer portal.
  9. Where can I go with questions?
    If you have any questions, you can contact PriPost customer service. We can be reached on working days from 9 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. at 070-2210460 or ask your question via a ticket in the customer portal. We are happy to help you!
Can I also use the Postbox office address on my website?2020-01-12T13:49:03+01:00

You can use both the PO box address in Leidschendam as well as the physical office addresses on your website. Many entrepreneurs use the office address on their website or printed matter to separate private and business matters.

What many entrepreneurs are not aware of is that you as a company have the legal obligation (certainly with a webshop) to state a physical address on the website.

With a lease agreement issued by our sister company PriOffice, it is also possible to use the office address as the registred address for the Chamber of Commerce. More information can be found here.

My company is based abroad. Can I still open a Postbox?2019-07-15T00:18:59+01:00

PriPost is for anyone who needs a postal address in the Netherlands, no matter where you or your company are located. If desired we will send your mail to your address abroad. We can also scan the mail for you and send it to you digitally. Another option is that we store the mail for you.

Can PriPost take over the entire mailroom function of my company?2019-07-15T00:21:22+01:00

In this time when less and less mail is sent, it is cheaper to outsource your mail room in most cases. PriPost has the right knowledge and experience. Please contact our Sales Manager for an appointment and a quote.

Is it important that the place where my company is located is the same as the place of my postal address?2019-07-15T00:18:31+01:00

It remains a personal choice, but today practice shows that this is no longer important. Due to the increasing use of the internet, everyone knows that web shops can be created from the living room or that people work in different locations. More and more companies and individuals make use of our service and communicate to their relations that the mail is processed professionally by an external company (PriPost).

Can I use my Postbox as a webshop for customer returns?2019-07-13T11:59:40+01:00

Yes, that is possible. There are now many web shops for which we process the returns. More information can be found here.

Why is PriPost the best option for an alternative mailing address?2019-07-15T00:19:21+01:00

PriPost offers the most practical and economical alternative. Practical because you will never have to leave your house to collect your mail. Regardless of where you stay, you can always view your mail. Economical because we are by far the cheapest provider in the Netherlands. We are a professional and well organized company with a very high, personal service for our customers. Your mail is in good hands with us.

Can I mention my Postbox address on my website?2019-07-10T16:11:38+01:00

Of course, you can mention your Postbox address on your website or have it stated on your business card. You can choose from two types of addresses: a PO Box address and a physical office address. Many companies and webshops make use of our services in such a way. You can also establish your company (Chamber of Commerce) at a Postbox address. More information about it you can find here.

I have several companies. Can I also request several Postboxes?2019-12-30T22:57:30+01:00

Yes, this is certainly possible, but not always necessary. You can specify multiple addressees (companies and names of people) per Postbox. There are four addressees included in the monthly fixed costs. From the fifth € 1,00 excluding VAT per week per addressee will be charged. If you want to separate the mail, you can use multiple Postboxes.
