1. What is a Virtual Office and how can it benefit me?

A Virtual Office provides you with a great business image and everything you need without an actual office. A ‘Green’ friendly option allowing you to work from home or anywhere in the world but maintaining your very own presence in the location of your choice, a truly flexible and modern way to work. You will benefit from telephone answering service, post handling, messaging plus a range of support services and access to meeting facilities at preferential rates. An office you can call your own without high cost overheads.

2. Is a Virtual Office suitable for my business?

It’s a flexible, cost effective, lifestyle and business choice. You may be working from home but needing a City Centre presence and or a regular meeting place. Maybe you make visits to the City and want a base you can call your own even for just a couple of hours a day or perhaps you need those all important support services. The choice of packages offered considers the needs of businesses at home or on the move.
