Running a business at home is quite convenient and flexible; however, there can be a few issues that may arise from it. The biggest and most frequent issue that occurs among those who run a home-based business is the invasion of your personal privacy. Running a home business means you are most-likely using your home address to register your business. We all know how important it is to secure your personal safety and registering your business to your home address means all your clients know where you live. Consider an alternative like a Virtual Mailbox service to register your business and receive all the mail sent to you. PostScan Mail offers many virtual addresses that can be used for your LLC registration.
Requirements for an LLC Address
Although these requirements mostly apply to businesses located in the US, most developed countries also apply the same or similar regulations. In order to register an LLC you need to have a physical address in your file for the purpose of legally receiving mailing. Even though your home address is sufficient, it's not ideal for your personal confidentiality; especially because you would be exposing your personal address to the public.
Another option to consider is having a regular P.O. Box, which is allowed in some US states; however, you would need to make sure that it’s permitted for your business by checking with the business registration authority of your local federal government. The downside; however, is it would be difficult for some clients to trust your business and building your legitimacy won’t be a walk in the park.
