This blog post was updated on 29 July 2020. Virtual Office services have been popular among foreign entrepreneurs for years. It is required to have a local legal address for your business and using virtual office services gives you access to one as well as other perks. In many cases, it might also be reasonable to use these services even while conducting business in your home country.
In the following article, we bring out the main advantages of using virtual office services.
Legal address for your business
Every company needs to have a legal address and mostly it’s not allowed to be a residential address. So in case you are starting a business in a foreign country, finding a good virtual office service provider is often mandatory. But even if it would be allowed, registering your company to an apartment doesn’t really leave an impression of a serious business. And would you really like your home address to be displayed on public websites?
Less overhead costs
Let’s be honest – leasing or buying an office space is expensive. If you can find a suitable office space in the first place. Besides – do you want to figure out what color carpet to get, worry about internet connection and ordering coffee beans or focus on your core business instead?
Even if you and your employees are actually working from home (or from under a palm tree), it’s not professional to organize your meetings there. Virtual offices offer the option to use a meeting room that is equipped with all necessary supplies and also offer reception services so your clients and cooperation partners feel welcomed.
Virtual offices (well, ours anyway) are located in business districts, so having your company registered to this address tells your clients that the company has value and you take your business seriously.
Friendly option for environment and your employees
In modern world many jobs can be done remotely and working from a certain location only during office hours is not necessary or even possible anymore. Using virtual office as a front and letting your employees work from home reduces their stress – they don’t have to spend time on commuting, which also means fewer cars on the streets and fewer vehicle emissions.
