Why Does Your Business Need a Virtual Office?

For many start-ups and small business owners, renting a physical office space can be far too expensive at the current stage of their business. Many entrepreneurs find it easier and much more affordable to work from home, in libraries, coffee shops or anywhere they don’t need to spend hundreds of pounds a month – which we can’t blame them for!  


What is a virtual office?

A virtual office enables you to register your business at a professional address at a much lower cost compared to leasing or buying a traditional office space.

Having a registered business address not only projects a professional image but ensures your personal privacy and helps you to target the local area. A registered business address means you will be able to list your business on Google, Companies House and social media pages at the chosen address. Each virtual office package varies dependant on the organisation, but this usually includes some postal services.


The Benefits of a Colbea Virtual Office


Inclusive Meeting Room Use

As a Colbea Virtual Tenant, you will be entitled to 5 hours of free meeting room hire per month (which is worth over £60 alone!).  After your inclusive hours, you will also receive a 10% discount on all room bookings. There are 5 professional, fully equipped meeting rooms to choose from and you are not limited to your registered centre, so you can use what is suitable for you. This is ideal if you need to host interviews or other important meetings.

Post forwarding and holding services

Your post will be deliverable to the address in which you have chosen. You will have the option to collect this in person or have it forwarded onto your personal address, leaving a professional impression for your clients and protecting your privacy.

Business Mentoring Throughout

You will have unlimited access to our one-to-one business advice sessions with our expert business advisors. You can use these to talk about general business advice, development for your business, marketing and much more.
