Why choose the services of a virtual office in Mexico?
The virtual office is a suitable option for investors who do not need to have a traditional office – this can be ideal for those who can carry their business operations exclusively on the internet or for businessmen who have a small company.
This can also be the case, of course, of sole traders, who, through the services of a virtual office in Mexico, they can obtain a professional business image, as they can meet with their partners in a business environment.
Typically, sole traders do not have an office, and they will generally use their personal address as their business address, if the business activity that they carry allows that.
The virtual office can be an attractive solution considering the current trends for employment, as more and more employees find it appealing to work remotely.
Due to the technological progress of the last decades, but also due to the types of online services that have been perfected in the last decades, it is now possible to carry a business activity as an investor, and as an employee, remotely or in a hybrid work environment.
This has created a new type of work environment – the telework, which refers to remote work. This can be ideal for those who need to hire employees, while using the virtual office as the company’s office.
Please find below some of the latest data concerning telework:
- in 2020, work contracts that offered telework increased by 78%;
- in a study conducted at a global level, it was shown that 72% of the employees consider that the hybrid work (remote and in an office) is the most appealing work scenario;
- 16% of the workers consider that remote work is ideal for them;
- remote jobs announcements on recruitment platforms increased by 350% in May 2021, compared to May 2020;
- in a study analyzing the productivity of remote workers, it was shown that 45% of them have reported better productivity results, and these results were backed-up by their employers as well.
What are the costs of a virtual office in Mexico?
Choosing the services of a virtual office in Mexico can drastically reduce the expenses related to the registration of a business. During the process of company formation in Mexico, investors will probably spend a large budget for many registration procedures.
In the case of foreign investors, immigration procedures must also be taken into consideration, such as the issuance of a visa, a procedure for which a fee is charged as well.
The virtual office is seen as the most cost-efficient solution in obtaining a business address, which is compulsory for all businesses.
The costs will vary depending on the services selected by the clients, but in all cases, they will represent just a fraction of the monthly costs that a businessman should expect to pay when establishing a business in a traditional office.
In general, the fees charged by those that provide virtual office services are imposed on a monthly basis, and in Mexico, they are around $139-$149. However, these costs are charged for basic services.
In the case of investors who want a private office that includes all the services, and which can accommodate more persons – from 1 to 5 or 6 persons, then the costs can increase to even $2,000.
The overall prices are generally influenced by 2 main factors: 1) the services chosen by the businessman, and 2) the location of the building that hosts the virtual office.
