Whether you work from home, run a small business, or simply need additional office space in a new location, a virtual office can provide the perfect solution. A virtual office includes all the aspects of a traditional office, without the running costs of owning and maintaining an office space throughout the year.
The main purpose of a virtual office company is to provide an address where its clients can register their business, accept incoming communication e.g. mail and phone calls, rent a co-working desk and conduct business meetings. Virtual office providers therefore offer four primary services: communication services, meeting room services, co-working desks and a registered business address. If you are working from home and you don’t want to register your business at your home address, or give out your home phone number to clients, a virtual office will provide you with an alternative address, mail services, phone number and space to meet clients.
In addition to being a great solution for work-at-home and small businesses, virtual offices are an innovative and cost-effective solution for established companies that conduct business overseas. While many businesses spend thousands of pounds a year on an office in a high-rise building in New York City Delhi or Shanghai, a virtual office can provide the same services at a fraction of the price. Virtual offices also enable companies to have offices in numerous different locations, providing space for your company to conduct business and meet potential clients anywhere in the world. Some virtual offices offer various features and services for their clients, such as telephone lines and call forwarding services who will answer incoming calls in your company’s name and forward calls to your mobile phone while you are away from the office.
The concept of a virtual office has been around since the 1990s, yet only in the past few years has the industry truly begun to grow. Hundreds of companies now boast virtual offices with countless amenities and locations across the UK.
