What Is A Virtual Office?

Especially in this period of economic downturn, it's important for businesses to worry about their expenditures, and have a complete overview of where their money is going. Time to tighten the belt, so to speak. For any businesses, start up costs are high - not only the initial costs of hiring staff and setting up the business, but a huge cost which is often overlooked, is the price of buying or renting office space.

In a small town, the cost might be relatively low, but equally your level of potential clients will be low. In comparison, working in a busy city can be much more expensive, making start up costs extremely tough to deal with. However that cost can often be dealt with via the higher level of opportunity, with more clients and more business being associated with the city.

As a result, a Virtual Office is the perfect compromise for a small business who want to get their foot on the ladder in the city, but can't quite afford to pay for their own office space in the city - or rather, can't justify doing so. With buying or renting your own office, you of course have to worry about the expenditure for things like furniture, computers and stationery, not to mention the food and drink. Instead, a virtual office provides everything all inclusive, so your office bill is no longer many different expenditures altogether; instead you can see the amount you're paying for your office rental all in one single cost.

But what is a virtual office?

Business Address

A Virtual Office allows your business to take up an address without having the office physically situated there. So for example you could have a London business address, while your main work takes place outside of the city.

Phone Number

Your office will also take up the phone number of your virtual office. So a virtual office in London would mean your business would inherit a London phone number.

Mail Forwarding

Your virtual office will be able to accept mail to your London address, and then have it forwarded onto your physical office premises.

All in all, your office will therefore look and feel as if it's located in London; and indeed most virtual office companies can provide office space in London whenever you need it too. Perhaps you need to meet a client at the London address; no problem, just ask and it can be set up for you. However for all intents and purposes, purchasing a virtual office address provides your business with a London address and telephone number, expanding your business into the city, and reaching out to clients who you could never gain access to previously.
