What we do: The ins and outs of our services

07th Aug 2020 by Fiona Bowen

Space2B at The Maltings is the ultimate divergent business hub in Cardiff; but what does that mean? What does a divergent business hub look like? What does it do? What does it offer?

Here at The Maltings, we pride ourselves on being able to support businesses at any level and at any stage of their development, from grassroots start-ups to established brands with over 100 in their workforce. We are more than just offices. Well, we have state-of-the-art offices, sure, but there’s a lot more to offer under this historic roof.

Virtual Services

As part of our Virtual Services, we offer a Virtual Mailbox and a Virtual Secretary service. We also offer a combination of the two, as our full Virtual Office package.

With our Virtual Mailbox, customers are able to register their company under our prestigious address with Companies House as well as display our address under their contact details on websites, email footers, business cards, etc. By registering your company under our address, you avoid having your personal address displayed publicly on the Companies House website and your business will seem more established to any would-be customers or clients. Our community team will also hold any mail addressed to you, securely on site, until you come in to collect it or request it be forwarded to you (for a small fee).

To set up a Virtual Mailbox account, we would simply need company and contact information, such as Company Registration Number and certified proof of ID & address, and a signed agreement for a minimum term of one month.

Our Virtual Secretary package is a call answering and message recording & forwarding service. Our professional community team will answer inbound calls under your company name and from here will either try to forward the call directly to you or record a message and the caller’s contact details to pass on to you by email.

Setting up a Virtual Secretary account is the same process as the Virtual Mailbox except with a three-month minimum term agreement. Anyone opting for both services in our Virtual Office package need only pass this information onto us once, sign a three-month minimum term agreement, and from there enjoy the benefits of a complete virtual office at The Maltings.

Meeting Room Spaces

Besides flexible personal working spaces, we also cater for more formal meetings - be that with your clients or with larger numbers of people for board meetings. Since the beginning of COVID-19, we have kept ourselves informed and acutely aware of updated, evolving government guidelines, adapting our facilities as and when making them a safe place for you to work and your clients to visit.
