Looking for a virtual office in Singapore? You’ve come to the right place! Here, you’ll find all the information you need about renting the best virtual and serviced offices in Singapore. We also list down all the providers for your convenience.
What is a Virtual Office?
Just as the name suggests, you’re not really after the physical office. With a virtual office, you’re usually paying to rent a prestigious CBD address for your business. The reason is simple – having a nice address gives your customers the impression that you’re a big company, although, you may be just a one-man home-based business. Because they now trust you more, the tendency to become a paying customer is also higher.
These days, a virtual office package comes with a host of other services and may include:
a) Phone/Fax Number
A dedicated phone number, which is forwarded to your phone or answered by a receptionist.
A mailbox with SMS/email alerts, which you can self-collect or have them forwarded to you.
c) Meeting Rooms
Use of meeting facilities, so that you can meet your clients at the virtual office address.
d) Secretarial Services
Instruct the office to help you deposit cheques that came in through mail, for example.
Business lounge access, web hosting, online voicemail/fax service, company incorporation, etc.
Some of these services are optional and come with extra charges.
How Much Does a Virtual Office Costs?
Just like physical office rental, you pay on a monthly subscription basis – sometimes a quarterly, half-yearly or annual upfront payments can give you some savings. The rates depend on the package you choose, which differs by the additional services as stated above, the location (i.e. address) and also if the virtual office provider is a local or global company.
To give you an indication, the most basic package from a local Singapore virtual office provider can costs as little as S$12.50 a month. In comparison, a comprehensive package by an international provider can run you up to S$400 a month.
Do note that there’s usually additional 7% GST, a setup fee and one to two months deposit.
