Office Building

What is a virtual office address?
A virtual address offers you the use of a professional address within an office building or business centre. You are not renting an office, simply renting the right to use the address as your own. You can use this address for all your business correspondence and give it out to your suppliers and customers, add it to your business cards, add it to your website, it will literally appear that your business is located at the virtual address. You can collect your post at a time that suits you if you are local to the address, alternatively if more convenient most services will forward any post onto your desired address meaning your chosen virtual office can be anywhere in the UK. Often you’ll be able to take advantage of additional services such as a virtual phone number, meeting room rental, or call answering.

Why use a virtual office address?
Opening and maintaining an office is one of the costliest moves a new business can make and for many it’s completely unnecessary especially since most communication can now be done over the phone or internet. However, to add a layer of professionalism, to make your business appear reputable and to offer confidence to your customers it is beneficial to have a physical location. The rental of an office is expensive, including purchasing computers, desks, chairs, an internet connection, a phone line, as well as the cost of commuting… the list goes on. Working from home provides a financial solution, but not a professional one, it’s hard for outsiders to take a business seriously if their mailing address is clearly a personal residence. You also have to consider your privacy and security – do you really want to be handing out your personal address to customers?

A virtual office address provides a simple, affordable and business changing solution. Visit our website here or call us on 01273 741400 for more information on a virtual office address with csnotepad.
