The Rising Demand for Virtual Offices


Due to the recent pandemic, remote working has increased significantly and many businesses have found that remote working is the best way moving forward. As a result, there is a rising demand for virtual offices.

So what is a virtual office?

A virtual office is where you can pay to use a companies business address. This means that although you are working from home, you can still have the advantage of having a professional business address. You may also pay for services such as post handling, telephone answering and conference room hire. This is useful as you still may need physical meeting space and a conference room will ensure the meeting is held in a professional environment.

The advantages and disadvantages of a virtual office:


+ Lower overheads –       Lack of physical space
+ Less management needed –       Staff can become isolated
+ Can work remotely –       Staff can become less motivated
+ Remain professional –       Productivity may decrease


Important points to remember:

  • The size of your business may impact your decision
  • Consider your budget and brand image
  • Consider which service will best benefit you and your team
