Purchase advertising space in the University of Oxford Gazette if you are a commercial advertiser.

Am I in the right place?

Commercial advertisers are those who are advertising their potentially or actually profit-making business, property or service. If you expect to pay income tax or capital gains tax on profits from the business or service you are advertising, you are a commercial advertiser.

Examples of commercial adverts:

  • Renting out property, such as holiday lets or a second property
  • Offering tuition in any subject as a professional tutor or trainer
  • Offering any kind of professional service (eg cleaning, building, driving, physiotherapy etc)
  • Buying/selling goods as a business (eg buying second-hand books, cars etc with the intention of selling them on)

If none of these apply to you, you are probably a private advertiser. Click here to go to the online shop for private advertisers instead.
