Accommodation addresses/ instant offices

There is, of course, nothing wrong or illegal in having an accommodation address. However, any potential investor ought to be decidedly wary if a company only uses an accommodation address or an instant office and does not have its own permanent trading address. If an investment company is legitimate it will require its own premises, so why hide behind an accommodation address?

The following list is for guidance and is as accurate and up-to-date as I can reasonably make it. However, it is possible that some of these businesses have moved as they may not issue press releases if they relocate. investdrinks-blog is very grateful to Tony Hetherington's (Mail on Sunday) assistance in compiling the list.

Here are some accommodation addresses:

42 Bloomsbury Street,London, WC1B 3QJ.

BCM: this is an historic oddity: addresses are simply BCM or BM followed by a number, then a Bloomsbury postcode. The company behind this is British Monomarks, est. 1925. It is now just another maildrop, but in its heyday it was groundbreaking stuff and provided addresses for members of the royal family, and for lots of people in WW2 whose homes were bombed.
