What is Virtual Office?BlauSteinVirtual Office is the combination of a physical business address at a prestigious office center and useful related services (e.g. local phone number, postal address for incoming correspondence, mail scan and forwarding, registration address for German Trade Register, receptionist, etc.) in order to communicate with authorities, customers and suppliers. Virtual Office allows you to create the full image of a real office in Germany without paying high costs for leasing a physical office space. Virtual office provides you with an opportunity to operate your business from anywhere while still having a registered office, business address, marketing address, an office receptionist and a possibility to use meeting rooms in Germany.
While Virtual Office is very attractive, a physical office has some advantages too.
One of the advantages of a physical office is the possibility to arrange and conduct meetings with clients, suppliers, partners, brainstorming sessions with colleagues, interviews with potential employees, etc. in a business environment of a prestigious office center. Using our Virtual Office service, you can always book one of our meeting rooms of the required size in order to conduct meetings at our physical offices.
Another advantage of a physical office always offers a variety of office equipment for document-processing (scanning, printing, copying, shredding, clamping, sending, etc.) needed to properly conduct business activities and administration of your company. With our Virtual Оffice service, you can always request our Secretary to handle document processing for you using our high-quality office equipment.
An additional advantage of a physical office is the presence of an office secretary/receptionist who greets the visitors, answers the phone calls, handles the correspondence and perform other administrative tasks. With our Virtual Office, we offer professional Receptionist & Secretary service, that will be set-up following your preferences. We will take care of your guests according to your instructions, answer your phone calls with your company's name and provide you with many useful additional services.
In case of an official visitation by authorities, for example, a tax inspection, the representatives (often without notifying) visit the registered address of a company. If you use your private address as your business address, the unexpected visit may take place at your home. Moreover, an angry customer may also appear at your private address. With a physical office, you will avoid this kind of visits. As part of our Virtual Office service, we will always greet your expected/unexpected guests at your company`s registered address and provide them with necessary information and/or documents in accordance with your instructions.
The corporate documents of a company, such as the articles of association, register of shareholders, accounting & bookkeeping documents, etc. must be kept at the registered address of a company. Keeping the corporate documents at the physical office is considerably more secure than leaving them at your home. As part of our Virtual Office service, we will keep all the necessary corporate documents of your company securely stored at your dedicated company box.
Advantages of Virtual OfficeBlauStein
Flexibility – you may conduct business from any part of the world, while still having a registered office address in Germany. Using a Virtual Office is always easier and faster than renting a physical office. In addition, you are free to terminate the Virtual Office agreement at any time you want.
Professional look – having Virtual Office at the prestigious business center allows your company to look like a large and respectable enterprise with a great office and a huge number of employees without the need to renting an expensive physical space.
Low operational costs – Virtual Office fee is considerably lower in comparison to the rent of physical office. Office space in a premium business area of Germany will cost your company a fortune. Virtual Office will save you considerable costs and allow you to have more funds available for the operational needs of your company.
No deposit - renting a physical office is always associated with a security deposit of 3 to 6 monthly rental payments. Using a Virtual office is very convenient for those companies that do not have enough funds yet for a security deposit.
