q. Where a customer possesses a negative account balance, we reserve the right to hold mail for any of our virtual office services from being sent to the customer, until such time as the amount of the account balance owed is paid. The customer will be notified by email if an item of mail is held because they possess a negative account balance. Mail held for this reason will be held for 30 days. If the customer has not paid the negative account balance within 30 days, the item of mail will either be returned to sender; or, if we would incur a charge to return the item to sender, securely destroyed.
If a customer purchases a Registered Office or Service Address service from us, it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the correct address for the company is showing on Companies House for their registered office or service address.
r. To ensure limited companies using our address services comply with the London Local Authorities Act 2007, customers should ensure that they do not provide our registered office address for business purposes to third parties if they do not have an active Business Registry, Virtual Office or Virtual Office Premium service with us. Any general business mail received for companies that do not have an active business address service will be held for 30 days or until a business address service is purchased. If a business address is not purchased within 30 days, the mail will be returned to sender.
