Why the shift away from traditional offices?
- Tuesday, 05 July 2011 11:51
More businesses are looking at alternatives to the traditional office, with many businesses opting for the virtual office set up. But why is there a shift in what businesses think is the right environment for their work?
The initial reason is cost. Renting office space is very costly, especially in Central London. Businesses are always looking at ways to reduce costs and it seems like everyone is cutting costs as the economy grows gloomier.
But cost isn’t the only reason; some businesses are starting to see the traditional office as an outdated idea. In a world of 24megabyte download speeds, free Wi-Fi access and a computer to every home, we are adopting new ways of doing things. If we can set up a virtual office from our own home, then why spend company money on renting an office and all the bills that go with it? Why commute to an office every day, if we can have an office online?
Virtual Offices are convenient, flexible and affordable alternatives to the traditional office, if you are interested in a virtual office for your business, contact Hold Everything.
The Virtual Office Idea
- Wednesday, 20 April 2011 15:31
An office is typically a building or site, where employees commute to in the week. A virtual office has a different concept, bringing the office to the employees. Most office work can be done where ever the employee is, as long as they have a computer and the right data connections. Virtual offices eliminate the expensive costs of renting out office space and it means that workers can get more work done by cutting out commuting.
At Hold Everything, we offer a virtual office service that can include a prestigious central London business address and phone number. Together we will adapt a virtual office package that suits your business profile and enhances your business propositions. For more information, contact us here.
The Real Advantages of Having a Registered Address and Mail Forwarding

A Registered address is especially useful to small and new businesses. If you are a sole trader working from home, you may require a prestigious registered address to go on public records. Or if your UK business is run by overseas citizens it would be important, as having an official UK registered address is a legal requirement.
Having a registered address is your opportunity to have the address that your company deserves, but without all the bills that it would normally cost you. Using the virtual office as your registered address gives you the option to chose your ideal London Postcode, E14(Canary Wharf) or W1 (London’s West end) and London number, whilst having the freedom and low costs of working from home.
With the registered address we offer a mail forwarding service to make sure that you get all your mail that is sent to your registered address. A mail forwarding service is perfect for anyone who is working from home or in the process of changing location. Check out our different mail forwarding options.
You can use your registered address on mail, business cards and emails and it will say a lot about your business, by standing you out from competitors and impressing your clients. Contact Hold Everything to find out more.
