One of the first questions an entrepreneur must ask is where the startup company will be located. There are many options, all with advantages and disadvantages.
A business can start in a home office, which offers tax deductions, convenience, and very low overhead. However, working at home can be distracting and people often miss the social interaction of larger offices. Some have home offices set up because they enjoy telecommuting, but telecommuting is really only an option for people who work for larger corporations.
An attractive option for a startup company is a coworking, also referred to as a virtual office space, where office space is split between many small businesses. Our Beverly Hills’ virtual office package charges a monthly fee and offers all the amentities of larger spaces. Other arrangements may charge daily or even hourly for use of space.
A virtual office is also an option, especially for businesses that do not require a lot of time at a desk. Apollo Business Centers’ virtual office services include a physical address, usually found in remote office centers, and a professional environment to work at when needed.
An internet-based solution is to have a virtual team running the business. Each employee of the business finds individual office space, often in different cities, and communicates electronically.
More traditional office space can be had in the form of an office suit or executive suite. These arrangements come with a paid assistant, receptionist and charge based on the amenities that a business wants to use. This arrangement is also more expensive than some of the other options.
For those who feel coworking or an internet-based solution is the route they want to pursure perhaps a virtual office is their best option. A virtual office with ABC Virtual Office includes a Beverly Hills, 90210 mailing address, on-site private mailbox, mail handling and forwarding, conference room access, private telephone number and a receptionists to answer calls. All of these services are available for $75-$165 per month.
Push the image that you work from an executive suite, but enjoy the benefits of rent cheaper than your car payment.
