What are The Main Features of a Virtual Office?

It is important to understand that a virtual office allows companies based in Switzerland to use a business address. Companies need it to obtain correspondence from clients, business partners, and authorities.

Moreover, such an address is supposed to have a registered office in the country. It is a binding requirement in the case if a legal entity is formed in Switzerland. It is a great opportunity for those who don't want to pay prohibitive costs while operating physical offices.

Virtual offices should be established and operated by experienced specialists. This means that all correspondence received from customers or authorities with be redistributed later, depending on the requirements of each client. For example, official notices from local tax authorities will be forwarded to an accounting department of a Swiss legal entity. The correspondence received from business partners will be redirected to the representative of the company who is responsible for pursuing the partnership relations in the country.

In addition, virtual offices work through modern business centers. This means that they also could take advantage of all the services that these centers provide, taking account of the means of communication. A legal entity that starts a virtual office will not only have an address for correspondence but also a phone number and e-mail. All messages are supposed to be forwarded to the representatives of a company.

Why Choose a Virtual Office?

The virtual office is a good choice for foreign entrepreneurs who want to form a legal entity in Switzerland. Instead of investing a lot of money in establishing a physical office in Switzerland, a virtual office is a simple requirement to get an address in the country and tools for interacting with Swiss business partners.

Companies with registration in Switzerland that want to expand their operations in several cantons are welcome to start virtual offices outside the cities of headquarters. Such an approach supposes much lower costs and sufficient costs to cover communications demands.

Foreign legal entities, which are not registered in the country but who run various business operations in Switzerland or have more local partners, can start a virtual office to serve as a contact point for those partners. There is no need to have a physical office to maintain communication with business partners and authorities.
