In establishing an LLC, you must have a physical address. In many states, using a P.O. Box can lead to your formation paperwork getting rejected. The other option is to list your home address if you don't have an official business address.
But what if you're not comfortable putting your home address on public record — what can you do? Is there a free business address option? Unfortunately, aside from using your home address, which isn't recommended, there's no such thing as a free business address. However, there's a cost-friendly alternative.
A virtual mailbox or business address can be extremely useful for a small business owner like yourself. We'll explain how a virtual business address works and how Incfile help you obtain one.
Can I Use a Virtual Address for My LLC?
Yes, 100 percent! A virtual mailbox doesn't exist just online — it actually gives your business a legal and permanent physical address. It also offers you the flexibility to operate your business from anywhere in the world.
For many small business owners, especially those working from their homes or digital nomads, using a virtual address makes sense and might be the easiest way to keep track of your mail. However, remember the final decision comes down to what your business needs and its budget.
There are many virtual address providers, including Incfile. Incfile currently provides virtual address services with unlimited mail scanning in 24 states for an affordable monthly fee of $29.
