A virtual office could provide all the services without all the cost

By Debbie Orme

Location, location, location may be an old cliché when it comes to choosing property, but virtual offices provide great services without the effort of finding the right location!

One of the most popular business options today, the virtual office is a great idea for businesses, whether they're in a start up situation, or are already established.

Start-up businesses in particular need to keep costs to a minimum and, since business premises can be a significant outgoing, the costs associated with setting up an office is a critical business decision, possibly even the difference between success and failure when resources are in short supply.

Whether you're a sole trader working from home, who wants to give the impression of being a larger, well-established company, or a company wishing to venture into new territory, there's no better way to get a step up on to the professional business accommodation ladder than with a virtual office.

With this arrangement you can work from home AND have a prestigious business address! For what is generally a reasonable monthly outgoing, virtual offices will provide you with a local phone number and great address for your business, in addition to a fully-staffed office environment, where trained receptionists will answer calls on your behalf, creating a highly professional and competent image for your business. They'll also provide specialist mail handling and access to meeting rooms should you require such a facility.

Using the virtual office style enables your company to project a highly professional image, allowing you to compete with your competitors without the overheads of a full-time office. A real 'win win' situation!
