With the evolving world and the changing circumstances, ‘traditional’ offices have become redundant for certain businesses. This was evident throughout 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic created circumstances where businesses throughout the world began working from home. However, to appear professional and make a positive impression on the clientele, an office address is a requirement.
This is where Kickstart’s virtual office in Lahore steps in. Yes, Pakistan might be traditional in many ways, but there are still budding entrepreneurs who strive to provide the nation with the most dated business services – i.e. a virtual working space.
A virtual office is basically a platform that allows companies and their employees to grow and operate without a physical space and office set up. It does, however, serve as a business address for investors and clients who need a physical space to consider a business legitimate. Following are a few benefits of a virtual office:
- Work from home: This type of work from home (WFH) is slightly different from the WFH employees experienced during the coronavirus pandemic. In a virtual office, the hours are balanced and employees may find ample time to work on home-based businesses.
- A virtual office provides a proper office setup: This means your business will have a phone number, a mailing address, meeting rooms, access to workspace, and videoconferencing.
- Reduced cost: You don’t have to rent a large space to fit in all the employees, neither do you need to spend money on decor, maintenance, furniture, equipment, etc. Most importantly, there is no lease! The money saved can further be utilized to expand the business.
- Authorized address for local and foreign companies: The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) requires an address for company registration. With the facility of a virtual office, you have the option of operating a legal business from abroad or out of the city.
- Easy WeBOC registration: According to the regulations of the Government of Pakistan, if you have a business that often has foreign transactions, it is essential that all payments are made through a Web-Based One Custom Account (WeBOC). However, the WeBOC registration documents demand a valid business address, rent agreement, bills, etc. A virtual office immediately fulfills all these conditions.
- Open a bank account easily: According to the regulations of the bank, an office address is needed for verification before a business bank account is opened. The address of the virtual office can be used for this category.
