Who To Notify When Moving Office?
Moving Office Notification
Letting people know you're moving is a vital part of the moving process. Getting it right will help you to keep working efficiently after the move, minimizing any costly communication delays.Here are our top tips on which companies and organizations to notify when relocating your business.
Clients, Employees and Suppliers
Change of address e-cards or simple email communications can be effective ways of letting people know where to find you. Of course, employees need this information to get to work, but clients will need it too for meetings and correspondence, so it's vital you share the details with them as soon as possible.
Advise your suppliers of your new address, prioritizing any suppliers that are key to ensuring the good functioning of your business, like IT support.
Banks and Credit Cards
Advise your bank of your new address, remembering to make sure they change the address of both your business bank account and company credit cards.
Office Supplies and Subscriptions
Don't leave yourself open to stock-outs that could disrupt your work. Make sure all your office and IT supplies continue to arrive on time by promptly getting in touch with key suppliers. Change the address registered for any magazine subscriptions, as well as any online store accounts you may have.
Utilities and Telecoms
Make sure your energy and water suppliers know your new address as soon as possible. This will help to ensure that you have the power and comfort you need to get started on your first day. The same goes for communications.
With online correspondence taking place at lightening speed throughout the working day, getting your internet connection up and running rapidly is all important. Notify both your telephone and mobile service providers of your change of address to keep the calls flowing.
Tax and Insurance
Let the taxman know where to find you. This way, you avoid any tax disputes or misunderstandings. Don't forget, your new address may mean you pay a different level of property tax. Notify Social Security and the Internal Revenue Service, and make sure your health insurance, employer liability insurance and pension provider receive your new address too.
