What are the advantages of having an 0845 number?
The advantages of having an 0845 number is that you can get custom from all over
the UK and are not tied to a specific area. It is also free for you to receive calls
if they are pointed at a landline. The customer also only pays a small fee of between
3-5 pence per minute to call you. A lot of large companies use 0845 numbers; therefore
this will make your company look larger, even if it is only small.

you would like to know this throughout the month rather than at the end, we offer
online call statistics where you can monitor your calls. This is great for customers
with adverts who would like to know how many calls they are getting from these adverts
and whether they are worth the money spent. Online call statistics are charged at
£5.00 + VAT set up and then £5.00 + VAT per month. Please call us on

How can I tell if a customer has called my 0845number directly
or has called my 0845 number?
The best way of being able to differentiate between your calls is by adding a call
whisper. When you answer the phone you will receive a short message to tell you
where the call is from (this can be set by you to say whatever you like i.e. '0845
number calling' or 'a business call') all the customer will hear is the phone ringing.
You can then answer the phone appropriately.
Call whispers are charged at £5.00 + VAT set up and £5.00 + VAT monthly
Is there any other routing options other than landline or mobile like Skype or VOIP?
Yes, we can also route calls through to a Skype or VOIP number.
