The advantages of the virtual office

The virtual office is often a preferred solution for small companies or startups. The main reason is that it implies lower costs than a traditional office where entrepreneurs will need to budget the monthly costs for the respective rent, maintenance, repair work, and others. This is not to say that this manner of working is not suitable for large businesses. The decision to work via a virtual office can be just as suitable to a larger company, such as a software development firm, for example, and whose employees are not conditioned to work in a local office all of the time. The company can then work in a virtual office and request office space services as needed. Company formation in Denmark is a simple and straightforward process and, by working via a virtual office, investors will also enjoy a high degree of flexibility and reduced costs.

The list below includes the four main advantages of working via a virtual office in Denmark:

  • Reduced costs: the costs related to working via a virtual office are comparably lower to those needed for the upkeep of a rented or purchased office space.
  • Physical address: the business will not lack a physical address that is needed for company formation and for correspondence. 
  • Complete services: the flexibility of this office is important for some types of companies and clients can choose between various services like mail forwarding, telephone answering and others so that the business has an adequate, professional presence.
  • Suitable for all types of businesses: small and medium-sized businesses, but especially startups in Denmark have the greatest benefits when choosing to work via a virtual office.

Business owners in Denmark may find that one or more of these advantages suit their needs. The decision to operate via a virtual office is one that takes place during the initial company formation states as the address will be required for registration. This is a mandatory condition for locally registered companies, as well as for branches of foreign companies, to maintain a local address in Denmark. This address will appear in the company’s constitutive documents and it will be used for official correspondence as well as for the creation of a bank account as part of the general company registration in Denmark.
