Running a Business without an Office

virtual office in Dubai

Because of the global health crisis, businesses around the world were forced to adapt new methods to keep their operations running without compromising the safety of their staff. One of the most common solutions companies come up with is allowing their staff to work remotely. However, similar to working on site, there are also challenges in running a business without an office.


Whether you’re starting a new business or you’re planning on growing the existing business, there are several ways for you to start your mainland business setup Dubai.

One of the best options you may consider at the moment is getting your staff to work remotely. While this setup may have some disadvantages, it is the best option to ensure everyone’s safety. Afterall, you can always set up a virtual office Dubai, to provide everyone with a more professional work environment while working remotely.

How does a virtual office work?

A virtual office is very similar to a traditional office. The only difference is that it mainly operates virtually. You and your clients don’t physically meet each other most of the time, but rather use a virtual space which serves as a medium for communication. You may interact with your clients through your website, emails, telephone calls, chats, and other electronic means.

Virtual offices don’t have to mean that you don’t have a brick-and-mortar address. In fact, our virtual offices give you a real space where you can also accept visitors, meet with your team, a reception desk to handle calls, and other high-tech facilities that you usually see in modern offices. If you already partnered with a service provider to set up your virtual office you may also ask them about having an office address in a business centre in Dubai, where you can have occasional face-to-face meetings with your staff and clients.

What are the benefits of using a virtual office?


Compared to renting a physical office, renting a virtual office is more cost-effective since you won’t have to pay for large office spaces and equipment. Aside from helping you save business resources for buying supplies and equipment, it keeps you from spending large sums to pay for the lease contract.

Better branding

One of the most common reasons some businesses prefer traditional offices is having an address that is well-known to the public. It improves their visibility and branding especially if they are located in an area that has a good reputation. If this is also one of your concerns, you don’t have to worry since you can ask your service provider about the physical addresses they offer. Some providers can set up your address in Concord Tower Media City and other prestigious addresses that your clients and prospects can easily recognize.
