A postal address for business
Renting a postal address has been known to companies for a long time. Previously, a P.O.box was often used, but fortunately there is a cheaper and more practical alternative to this nowadays.
For small business owners or freelancers, the main reason to rent a postal address is usually to separate business and private. Especially when you work from home or don’t have a permanent office. It’s just not safe to communicate your private address everywhere, and you can largely solve that with a (business) mailing address.
Another frequently heard reason for companies is efficiency through digitization. Instead of picking up, opening and scanning all mail yourself, it’s just much smarter to get everything delivered digitally. The amount of mail has decreased considerably in recent years, making it no longer profitable to employ a mailroom employee.
For foundations and associations with regularly changing boards, an alternative postal address ensures that the postal address never has to change again.
