Out of an estimated 4.8 million private sector businesses in the UK at the start of 2012, an estimated 907,000 are operating in the construction sector. This figure represents almost one fifth of all UK businesses.
Scotland alone has 319,000 small businesses, of which 42.6% (136,000) are in the construction industry. Evidently, this is hugely competitive trade and you will need to pull out all the stops if you want your construction company to stand out.
The prestige associated with being ‘limited’
A large proportion of the UK’s small businesses are unregistered and, as such, are not legally required to have a registered office address. This is not an issue, and many unincorporated businesses are successful. However, in a highly competitive industry like construction, the prestige attached to limited (registered/incorporated) status could make the world of difference to your business.
All limited companies are legally required to have a registered office address, and with a high concentration of construction opportunities in Glasgow and the central belt as a whole, a city centre registered office address in Glasgow may add the corporate weight you require to tip the business scales of success in your favour!
A registered office from Blue Square
Blue Square Offices can provide your business with an impressive registered office address in the heart of the city. This service is available for £39.99 (plus VAT) per year and includes the forwarding of all official government mail at no additional cost.
If your business is unregistered, our city centre address is available to you as a business address. This would create a more professional image and could make your business more attractive to potential clients and suppliers.
