Where do I base my cloud-based business?
The UK start-up revolution is booming, with nearly 660,000 companies established in 2017, up from 608,000 in 2015.*
With various government backed schemes and many local councils offering business rate discounts to newcomers, there has never been a better time to make that pipe dream a reality.
But for many start-ups and entrepreneurs, one of the biggest costs to stomach is having a base for their business to grow. Whilst it would be more efficient and cost effective for many to work from home, especially with the rapid growth in cloud-based businesses, it doesn’t always give the best impression to the outside world. Listing your business under a residential address can give the impression that your business is far less developed or professional than it may be.
In the age of the internet we have access to far more information than we would have 10 years ago, just a simple google search can tell someone all there is to know about your business, and it is important to make sure you give a good impression on screen as this is often your first contact. This can also be said for the way customers or clients who call through to your business are dealt with over the phone.
For many this is their first impression of your business and its vital that professionalism and efficiency are in equal measure. Mantle Business Centres provides you with a virtual office presence using the same professional approach that underlines all of our services - so you know our team will manage your mail and calls as if you were actually there. We offer three all-inclusive packages that allow you to choose from just an address or call answering, or both together with no unexpected extra charges.
• Business Address for £45+VAT per month
• Call Answering £75+VAT per month

It’s an efficient, cost effective way to manage your business from afar, and we even offer a handy rolling monthly agreement – so you don’t need to commit long-term.
