Companies are beginning to understand that employees are more efficient when they operate outside of the office and it is actually saving these companies money.
What if you didn’t have any rent and rates to pay when starting off and what if this saving allowed you to operate your business for longer so that you could find your niche. It is now possible and many new entrepreneurs are considering having a virtual office and a virtual address.

* Overheads will be lower – If you are using a virtual office, then you get the benefits that a prestigious address affords you, but you don’t have to pay the rent and rates normally associated with this kind of business premises. Not having to maintain a brick and mortar office is a great benefit and there won’t be any additional bills to pay for electric including heating and air conditioning. You get to work from the comfort of your own home where everything is paid for already and you are never late for work.
* More productive staff – If your business operates out of a virtual office, then this means that staff have no long commute to get there.
