What Do You Need to Update After Your Business Relocation?
Keeping everyone in the loop on your new address is essential. You don’t want to cause any confusion and have someone show up at the wrong office. Maintaining consistency with your business address will help ensure everyone has the correct information. After relocating your business, you should update the following:
Your Business Address
Updating your business address everywhere can be time-consuming, but it is necessary to ensure your address is consistent. You can start this process by updating your website, searching your business online, and seeing where the address needs to be changed. Places that need your updated address include the following:
- Chamber of Commerce
- Post office
It would be best to let the IRS, State Department of Revenue, and your local government know about your move as well. This way, you receive all your tax information, and your permits and certifications stay updated.
Your Phone Number
If you can, we suggest trying to keep your current phone number to make the relocation process even easier. However, if you have to change phone numbers, ensure you can still keep your old one. Doing this allows you to forward any calls to your new phone number, which also lets callers know of your new location.
Credit Card Company and Bank
When changing corporate locations, you should let your business’s credit card company and bank know in order to prevent fraud. It’s also important to check on any automatic payments to the company credit card to make sure the payments still go through after updating your business address.
All Social Media
Social media is one of the best places for clients and customers to get information about your business. Therefore, you should update all your social media accounts after a corporate move with your new address and phone number. You may also want to post on social media about the move to keep everyone informed.
If you run any advertising campaigns that focus on local markets and demographics, they should be updated with your new business address. This ensures the ads direct those who see them to the correct location.
In addition to updating your social media platforms and advertising, you should also update all other marketing materials, which include the following:
- Business cards
- Mailing materials
- Email signatures
Customers and clients may reference these materials for your address, so updating your marketing items can inform them of your new location.
Clients, Customers, and Vendors
It’s essential to inform your clients, customers, and vendors of your company’s move, so they can reach you at the correct office. You may want to reach out to them and let them know in one of the following ways:
- An informative email
- A pop-up window on your website
- A note on invoices
- A postcard in the mail
These methods help spread the word of your relocation amongst your valuable customers, vendors, and clients while also adding a personal touch to your communication.
Industry trade groups provide useful information that could affect your business, so you should update them about your new address. With your new location, they can inform you about any legislation impacting your company, leads, and other credentials.
