Virtual Offices– The Latest Offering from Co-Work Spaces

For start-ups and small businesses, it’s so important to keep expenses low. One of the largest expenses for most business owners is rent. Until recently, renting an office space has been the only way to get a credible business address, admin support and professional amenities. Now there is a way to avoid paying rent, yet still reap the benefits of a physical office space – hello virtual office! At Cove, we offer a premium virtual office membership giving you a prestigious Brisbane address along with many other amazing features. Here’s our guide to virtual offices and a few reasons why you may want to consider one for your business.

What is a Virtual Office?

A virtual office gives you an official address to use in legal, administrative, or communication purposes without a physical office space. Also providing other services including the use of meeting rooms in a co-working space, virtual offices are great for freelancers, entrepreneurs and small businesses who need administration help and a business address in a prime location.

What’s Included When You Rent a Virtual Office?

A virtual office package comes with a combination of services, with the most common inclusions being:

  • Business address – a prestigious business address that portrays a professional image.
  • Landline number and answering service – no more missed calls and missed opportunities. Virtual offices provide a professional call answering and transferring service giving a great first impression to current clients and potential new prospects.
  • Mail management - have mail and products sent to your business address rather than to your own home. There will always be someone there to sign for your parcels and store your mail until you are able to collect it.
  • Meeting facilities – have access to room booking systems and be able to reserve meeting room space for when you need it. Meeting rooms are fully equipped with everything you need including projectors, television screens and refreshments.
  • Ad-hoc use of co-working space - great for start-ups or entrepreneurs who would like a reprieve from the home office occasionally or for professionals who spend most of their time on the road and need a space to complete admin work every now and then.

The Benefits of a Virtual Office

Cost Efficiency

Keeping costs down in the early stages of a new business is essential, similarly for established businesses, a physical space may not be a wise or necessary investment. A virtual office allows you to work from your home office or on the road yet still have a credible address and access to professional services expected of a reputable business.

Positive Impression

A virtual office gives you access to impressive facilities for when you need to meet clients in person. It also boosts the credibility of your business as some people may be reluctant to trust a business without a physical address. A virtual office gives the impression that you are able to lease your own office in a reputable location, and have your own team of support staff. The ideal option for start-ups, as despite being new to the market, you will be able to rival competitors for credibility and professionalism.


An ideal solution if you work from home but want the ability to separate your work from your personal life and keep your home address private. A virtual office will stop your own address appearing online and in maps.


A virtual office gives you a lot of the admin support you need to allow you to focus on running and growing your business. No more missed calls or trips to the post office!

If you want to work where you want and when you want, yet have expert admin support, access to impressive facilities and a premium Brisbane address for your business, contact Cove today. We can tailor a solution to suit your business requirements ensuring you receive all the services you need to efficiently and effectively grow your business. Call us today (07) 3268 9555.
