FAQ aboutVirtual offices

Serviced officesVirtual offices

What is the difference between a serviced office and virtual office?

The biggest difference between a serviced office and a virtual office is that a virtual office does not provide you with any physical office space.  This enables virtual office clients to portray a professional business address without the overheads of an actual office space, giving them credibility and prestige. Besides this, many of the services are the same such as telephone answering, administrative support, reception services and mailing address. It is important to note that virtual office clients are still able to access temporary office space and coworking space or make use of on-site facilities such as boardrooms at a reduced rate.
