So you are looking to start a business. You don’t have a lot of money to lease out a store front and you don’t want to use your personal residence for privacy purposes. What can you do?
The best affordable option is to obtain a suite box. A suite box is a LEGAL business address which you can use for your small business! You may have a local post office or UPS store in your neighborhood that you can rent a suite box from. Prices vary depending on your geographic area. You can expect to pay between $5 to $20 per month depending on your exact location! Many locations will have better prices if you commit to a longer term, (such as a year).
Its important that you get a suite box and not a PO box. While you may have never known there is a difference between the two, there actually is. A suite box has a person at the physical address during normal business hours. A PO box does not have a person at the physical address during normal business hours. This is the difference between a Legal and Illegal business address. If you are not 100% sure, you can ask at the location where you are planning on renting a box what the classification is.
Quick and easy way to obtain a LEGAL address for your business!
