A corporate headquarters , also known as headquarters for the English term headquarter, is the building that concentrates the most important activities and functions of a corporation. The concept is logical if the company in question has several offices; otherwise, the headquarters will always be the only building in the company : “I work for Rautesbergz, a German company with corporate headquarters in Berlin and several subsidiaries worldwide”, “A multinational of American origin plans to move its corporate headquarters to Mexico to reduce costs”.
It is interesting to highlight the fact that, within the administrative field, there has been the creation in recent years of what is known as electronic headquarters. The development of the Internet network and the implementation of e-administration are those that have allowed us to talk about the aforementioned headquarters that we can define as the electronic address that certain entities have available to citizens.

All this without forgetting that they also have their electronic headquarters from town halls through councils or even educational centers of various kinds.

The Holy See is the name given to the structure in charge of Pope which includes the institutions of the Catholic Church . The concept is associated with Vatican State , which is a sovereign state at the service of the church .
In this way, within that scope, we should highlight the fact that there are other terms that make use of the word headquarters. Thus, for example, we find what is called vacant headquarters. This is an expression used to refer to that headquarters that at that time is not occupied because the death of the Pope or the corresponding prelate has occurred.
