Choosing Your Virtual Office
Knowing that Virtual Office can be such a great help in our way during company formation, there is also important notes we have to take down, when choosing the best Virtual Office service.
First and foremost, as we have mentioned in previous blogs, always check for if the virtual office service offering agency is a registered business centre or not. You have to always be weary of fraud, and check if address and information of the business centre is matching with the respective registration number of the business centre, on the government webpage. There might always be a chance that scammers are pretending to be working for a legal company.
Most Virtual office services offering agencies will provide customers with packages that cover different aspects of service, and charge you accordingly. Take OneStart Business Centre as an example, we have mainly 4 different types of service packages. Depending on the needs of your company, you can choose to require for different virtual office services.
Remember all those virtual office services we introduced to you in our first two blogs? It is ok if you just want an address and mailbox, and would like to handle all your calls and faxes by yourself. Packages content are custom-made. We hope to cater for your needs in the best way you want. Therefore, feel free to pick from the list and tell your agent how to structure your plan with you.
Although packages can be discussable, there are still packages that we have pre-selected services for you, for example our special package offer providing you with mail notification and call arrangement service. Usually detailed pricing and areas of services covered in pre-structured plans can be found on virtual office service providing agencies websites. However, still be aware of loopholes, for example unclear information and coverage. Always make sure you understand details and types of services included in your monthly virtual office service package, before paying for it.
Another source of differences in virtual office service packages pricing would be the location of the business centre address you will be using as your business contact address. For OneStart Business Centre, we have branches in Lai Chi Kok, Central, Causeway Bay, Mong Kok, and Kwun Tong. These are all golden belt of commercial centres and renowned commercial firms, especially central. Therefore, just like rent, our virtual office services pricing would differ a bit as for different commercial location you are after. We situated our branches in different areas, hoping to cater for different needs of customers. Afterall there might be different kinds of company you would like to form.
Take the Kwun Tong branch as example, Kwun Tong has been renovated into a new commercial centre. Industrial buildings are transformed into outlets and cafes, some online boutiques shops would also choose Kwun Tong for their brick and mortar. Therefore, as a start-up who can not yet afford a rental shop, choosing Kwun Tong for your virtual office, could help you to build connections into the business community. On the contrary, the highly competitive Central might be crowded with international banks and corporations. Situating your main office in Central might give you a competitive edge over your competitors, helping you to build a professional and elite brand image.
Take a look at your business plan, and see which part of Hong Kong you would like your shop or office to be situated in. We are sure our tailor-made virtual office packages could help you in creating your own business empire.
