10 reasons why you should use a virtual office

1) You can decide where your business is based. Want an address in central London? Not a problem. Do your customers want to know you’re local? Then pick an address in your town or city. Using a virtual address also means you get to keep your home address private.
2) Little or no financial commitment. Most virtual office services won’t tie you in to long term contracts, and the transparency means you will know up front what your monthly costs are going to be – excellent for managing start up cash flow.
3) You’ll be up and running instantly – most virtual services can be activated the same day.
4) It’s a very cost effective way to run your business as you have many benefits associated with a traditional office but none of the costs!
5) Should be choose to utilise it, you have access to a professional, multi skilled task force, ready for you to use.
6) If you want somewhere to meet clients, choose a virtual provider which gives you access to meeting rooms. That way, clients are able to meet with you at your business address without any confusion.
7)  Virtual offices are much greener than a traditional office as you are not actually travelling to and from an office every day.
8) A virtual office is a good stepping stone before potentially making the move to a full time office. And if the time comes when you do choose to move, you already have a relationship with an office provider who should be only too happy to help your transition from virtual to serviced office.
9) The world is your office – one of the many benefits of not being physically based in an office means that within reason, you can run your business from anywhere in the world.
10) Virtual working leads to better productivity as time management takes priority and tasks are completed more efficiently.
