A virtual address can suit any size business from different industries. Typically, virtual offices are highly sought by freelancers or entrepreneurs. They are working from home but want to give the appearance that they have office space. That isn’t to say that virtual addresses aren’t suitable for more established companies though.
It is a great way to expand into a different location without having a physical office space there. For example, if your competitors have offices in London and Singapore, but you are just wanting to test the Singapore market for now – a virtual office could be the perfect solution. A virtual office could also suit someone who travels around a lot. They would have an extra to keep track of their mail.

Virtual office address
A virtual address can also be used for two legal purposes: as a registered office address and as a director’s service address. By having a virtual address you can use a single location for all of your business correspondence. It is also a practical solution if you don’t have a permanent business address. You can register your business from one location, no matter where you are running it from.
A company director has to register certain details with Companies House, and this includes an address. This is something that is available on the public domain. Because of this many business owners choose to have a virtual address at this stage of growing their business. This keeps your home address out of the public eye, and also looks more official on legal documents.
Benefits of virtual office services
Privacy and security are two major issues for businesses, and a virtual office address provides the solution for both of these. It means that you can withhold your personal information from public record. Paperwork and deliveries are also handled in a secure manner before being forwarded to your chosen address.
First impressions are important when running a business. Having a virtual address could be the reason why a customer chooses you over a competitor. It can help to quickly establish new companies who have recently formed and want to be taken seriously by the business world.
