In times of remote working or WFH becoming the norm for many companies, this is the best time to own your virtual office and make the most of it. BRIDGES Virtual Office team sees the increasing demand for virtual office and understands business owners wanting a cost-effective service that doesn’t stop at handling mail and calls, but more personalised assistance designed to fit different business operations and presence which will also evolve accordingly in the same time.

 

More Than a Premium Business Address

We believe no business will operate the same way as it was on day one, this is why the BRIDGES team enhances the virtual office packages with more value-added services that benefit businesses more than just a business address.

The four new virtual office packages ranged from HK$600 to HK$2,500 per month, included services not only can be used online but also on-site. So every business, big or small, will enjoy an all-encompassing corporate presence. Other than professional mail and call handling, and private mailbox (which are the basis of any virtual office package), a dedicated local phone number and message taking are available with a trilingual client services team that keeps owners being informed instantly and no call is left unanswered. The latter service even takes on a pay-per-use basis to help business owners to save unnecessary overhead.

 

Elevated Package, Elevated Presence

While the off-site working trend will not slow down in the coming months, it is undeniable that face-to-face working enables more engagement and therefore boosts productivity and efficiency. Here come the virtual office packages which included complimentary access to BRIDGES coworking space, Harbour View meeting rooms and Executive Suite every month, to free business owners from investing a physical office space with extra cost but still can meet and greet like-minds in a prime location with professional administrative and business assistance.

 

Month-to-Month Contract – Less Commitment, More Flexibility

After being a professional service provider in Hong Kong for more than 17 years, we understand agility and flexibility are the keys to business growth and success. Therefore, instead of providing a long term commitment, business owners can opt for a month-to-month contract of BRIDGES virtual office plans to enjoy more flexibility in operation. Know more about why setting up a virtual office is beneficial for all growing businesses from our blog or simply get in touch with our Virtual Office team at info@bridges.hk to see which service solution will work best for you.

More young generations are starting their own business these days. Different from the past, they do have various channels to know what steps they can take to be a smarter entrepreneur, and how to get things done in the most cost-effective way.

For instance, if you’d like to put more resources into developing your business, it seems some traditional constant expenses like running a physical office or miscellaneous fees for maintaining that office should be cut down when they are not really facilitating your growth. Instead, you may restructure those resources and put into ‘real’ business, like materials / service provider sourcing or investing in product development, etc.

In this article, we’ll explore some efficient ways for a start-up to maximise its benefits under effective financial controls when running a business in HK.
 

 

COUNT the Cost

As mentioned above, being a savvy start-up or entrepreneur, minimizing the business costs and maximizing profits is crucial. So how do you know which cost to cut? Yes, one biggest monthly expense is RENT. HK property rent is known as one of the most expensive (read related news here) around the globe, especially the Central district. Central remains to be the top-level area as Core Business District (CBD) where most business activities take place, for many ambitious companies including those from China try to be stationed in this prime district. Does it mean the chance of getting your firm situated in Central is small? Not really. To achieve this, besides taking a rather costly traditional office, there are 3 affordable ways for a young business like yours to consider :

> Serviced Office: a fully furnished physical office that allows small team working together with privacy, while the pay-as-you-use office support services like printing, word processing are flexible to use - its monthly rental rate is higher than the other 2 options because of the private unit;

> Coworking Space: a space / compartment where you can freely come n’ go as you wish, having a desk in the Central environment to work, share and enjoy networking with like-minded people. This kind of coworking solution is very popular nowadays for people to gather and brainstorm new ideas - the fee is medium to high, offering daily access, weekly access and monthly access selections;

> Virtual Office: a virtual address provided by a professional business centre as your Government’s registered address (e.g. registered as your company’s business address, printed on name card, listed on website, etc.), together with mail handling, call answering and fax forwarding services. This is an excellent choice for start-ups with budget concern, given that they can locate their virtual office at a prestigious Central address at a minimal cost. There is a high level of flexibility for the start-ups to work whenever and wherever effortlessly - the monthly fee is the lowest of the 3 options, as low as HK$600 per month here.

In fact, high expenditure of physical office is not quite necessary at the company’s initial stage (especially when the budget control is critical during the start-up period), that’s why the virtual address solution is widely applied in many industries, but of course, picking a good proper address is important, preferably in a grade A building to further elevate your corporate image.

 

GET the Utmost Benefit

For start-ups, there are many flexible choices with different value-added services to help grow your business in the market. How to know which service provider is suitable for you? One thing you may take into consideration is their service experience and profundity. For example at our centre, the proficient team provides a full blend of corporate support services along with our business address plans, including phone & mail handling, incorporation packages, company secretarial services, accounting, tax reporting, visa application (work visa / China visa), payroll as well as meeting room usage and coworking space, where you can get all corporate compliance functions under one umbrella at once, and at a lower cost compared with getting them from several service providers generally. From time to time, we heard from our clients that the reasons they picked us is definitely the knowledgeable staff, fast turnaround time, fair pricing and wide spectrum of corporate assistance served as a business hub for entrepreneurs joining together and receive the support they need right here, from starting up to maintaining and expanding the business.

Many of our virtual office clients are frequent travellers, and so our Central centre will serve as a perfect place for them to meet business partners or clients when they come to HK. They could simply reserve a well-equipped meeting room for their professional meetups. Also, they could book a coworking space with Day Pass / Weekly Pass / Monthly Pass before their arrival, to ensure they’ll have a decent place to work and settle down. Not to mention when they are abroad, all their incoming calls will be answered in their company name by the fully-trained multilingual receptionists here, so no more lost business opportunities.

In recent years, virtual office seems a wise pick for the start-ups / SMEs to maintain and expand their business at low cost but with the right firm you can easily maximise your benefits and the overall superiority is beyond your imagination. Just some more tips, having a prestigious corporate address with company directory signage in a grade A building can help facilitate your government application or license acquisition, as well as your working visa application!

 

Try getting your business address at BRIDGES to taste our professionalism in a whole new way, where all your corporate needs are attentively taken care of. From corporate services like compiling an accounting report to office solutions like working at a flexible coworking space, or using our sea view meeting rooms whenever you’re in HK, please feel free to shoot an email to us at info@bridges.hk for any support.

Have you ever thought about how a Company Signage could enhance your business image? Or did you know a directory signage could help facilitate your official business applications to the government authorities? After reading this blog, you may just be surprised at how this simple tool does great things for your business!
 

 

Strengthen Company Image

A company signage set at the entrance of a premier business centre or building in HK could be one of the KEYS to outrun your competitor. Simply just imagine if you would like to acquire a service, when you arrive the building there is nowhere showing where the office is, you will probably turn away, and one business opportunity is most likely slipping away.

Another situation is that if you are about to engage in business with another start-up company, they gave you an address so you went up for a visit and tried to look into the directory signage, you found your possible partner’s company name was just not there, would you still have confidence in doing business with this firm? Maybe you will but from our experience, we have seen many visitors came in, stood in front of the directory signage board for a while and they left without a word. A company signage not only presents the quality of the services and products that builds up your company image, but also helps you avoid all the above awkward situations, especially if you are a foreign entrepreneur and people may wonder if you really have an office location in HK. By having a signage, it shows you have the absolute right to use the local registered address, for which most of our serviced office or virtual office clients have got one already.

 

Leverage Practical Functionality

When submitting applications to government departments or financial institutions, they always require a registered corporate correspondence address that proves your business presence in HK. Thus, your company directory signage will serve as a good proof in such applications like business license application, HK working visa application, bank account opening, etc.

A survey of FedEx once found during parcels or products delivery, people may get confused or even returned from the location when the company signage is omitted at the entrance, and eventually it cannot be sure whether the products are delivered to the right address. Therefore the reason why people registered for a company signage is not for maintaining their company image only but also trying to serve the basic and practical purposes such as ensuring they can send out as well as receive their business materials accurately and efficiently; and when the authorities come to visit their serviced office / virtual office / coworking space, a proper company signage at the entrance can easily project a good presence to represent the company and people are then able to locate it quickly.

Now at BRIDGES, by using our serviced office / virtual office / coworking space services, you can get your company directory signage handily for owning a prestigious presence at the CBD - Central, Hong Kong at HK$1,800 per annum, which means it’s just HK$150 (US$21) per month only!
