Looking for virtual office space?
As an entrepreneur with a flexible working lifestyle, you may not need a set office desk to work at every day. But you probably still do need some business basics: a postal address, a telephone number with call forwarding and access to professional meeting rooms when you need them. If this sounds like you, then a virtual office space may be the perfect solution for you.
What is a virtual office?
A virtual office is a service that enables entrepreneurs to work remotely while providing them with a range of business services. Having a virtual office allows you to maintain a professional business address without having to actually rent out an actual space.
Who would benefit from a virtual office?
Virtual office rental is particularly suited for people who don’t need a full-time office, especially people who work from home, people who regularly consult at other people’s offices, or people who are often on the road.
A virtual business office allows business owners to enjoy some of the benefits of a physical office, but without actually having a presence in the space.
What are the benefits of a virtual office?
Of course the major benefit of having a virtual office instead of a physical office is the cost saving. With no office lease, no furniture, no IT infrastructure, and no other physical business set up costs, you can save more money towards getting your business off the ground.
Another benefit of a virtual office is increased flexibility. Without an office and set office hours, you will have more flexibility to work when and where you need to. You can work where ever you want, allowing you the freedom to get out more, and get the creative juices flowing.
You’ll save those hours you would have spent stuck in traffic. Without having to go into an office, you save hours in commute time, meaning you will have more productive time in your day.
There’s no lease or long term commitment to worry about. By not signing a lease on office space, you don’t need to make any long term commitments. If you need to change cities or close your business, you won’t be tied in to a contract.
On the other hand, if you need to scale up from a virtual office to a more permanent office setup, expansion is really easy. You can quickly and easily upgrade to a coworking space or executive office.
What is provided in a virtual office offering?
A virtual office space includes a business postal address. This gives the business a physical address which is important for making certain applications like loans and tenders.
You’ll also receive the benefit of call answering and message forwarding. You’ll receive a dedicated phone number and calls made to your business number can be routed to your cell phone.
If you need to meet with clients or suppliers, you will have access to meeting space bookings, so you can set up a meeting.
