Main terms of the Business Address Service

KAPTÁR’s Business Address Service can especially be practical for all kinds of private entrepreneurs, because it makes your tax office reporting obligations simpler, yet gives you many additional perks and extras that can help you with starting off and developing.
Following seat service regulations
It is good to know that not only small- and medium enterprises are required to have a registered seat but all businesses, even private entrepreneurs. Finding a good registered seat address can be difficult though for many. Some wish to minimize related costs and register their companies to their homes or so called “company cemeteries”; and there are others who wish to minimize risks and rather trust professional service providers.
If you own a private real estate but are not staying there regularly, it is possible that most deliveries and mail will be returned to sender undelivered. If this happens to any official mail, it can even lead to the striking-off of your company from the register. If you wish to register the company in a rented apartment, you’ll need to negotiate with the landlord, who is likely to swipe such responsibility off his shoulders.
As the above two options are not available for many, they rather turn to a professional service provider. But such service providers may vary by price, experience, scope and quality of service. Below, we’ve collected some important criteria that you can evaluate when making your choice.
