Virtual offices are becoming increasingly popular with business owners, especially start-ups and those who’re setting up their businesses online.Businesses may opt for virtual offices in order to gain a prestigious business address, improve their professional image or to simply keep costs down. Here are 4 types of people who use virtual offices, and how it benefits their businesses…

1. Business Owners Working From Home 

Over recent years, many business owners, particularly those who own SMEs, have made the decision to run their business from home, and with the advances in technology, this is now entirely manageable. Businesses such as Virgin and Google have seen increases in productivity amongst employees who work from home, or away from the usual office environment.

2. Businesses With Geographically Split Teams

A virtual office helps businesses who employ people from around the world, granting them access to company facilities wherever they may be. Virtual offices are extremely flexible – for example, you can hold a company meeting at whatever business centre is most convenient for your employees.  

3. Freelancers

As a start-up, it’s important to establish your identity as a business without having to pay over the odds.

Having a virtual office not only gives you a permanent business address but allows you to have access to services such as call answering, mail handling, security, access to meeting rooms – establishing a corporate identity all for one monthly fee. Many virtual office packages also offer a shared desk space as an add-on.  This gives freelancers a designated desk with internet access, allowing for a change of scenery from their home-based office space - great for giving that much-needed peace and quiet to get on with important projects.

4. Owners of Larger Businesses, Trying to Cut Costs

Many business owners favour virtual offices as a method of cutting costs. Not only are virtual offices less tying than a full-blown office space for remote workers, but they can be scaled up and down dependent on the need of the business at the time and often have a flexible contract.

Large businesses also use virtual offices when testing new markets, as setting up an office in every trial location would be unaffordable and if things don’t go to plan, could be a costly mistake.

There are many benefits to virtual offices, and they are often an option overlooked when looking for your first business space.
