How to Setup a Small Business Without Having a Real Office

Setting up a small business without having an office is just too easy. With Internet-based business phone systems, online printing services and a full range of office and secretarial support services, getting yourself setup is a very simple matter. Hong Kong is one of the best places in the world to do it. You don’t even have to go there. Another option is the British Virgin Islands. Both are essentially the same, and so here is a look at how to set up a legitimate business, without having to do much except get online.

  • Setting up your company. It is easy enough to find agents who will take care of everything for you. In the case of Hong Kong, someone will be your representative. In the British Virgin Islands it is not even necessary. You don’t need to go. All you do is make the applications online and provide the requested details. That will not be much more than a certified copy of your identity documents. You will be in business and have bank accounts in a matter of weeks.
  • Support. Most of the companies that do the setting up of businesses in these two locations also offer secretarial and postal services. You will have a formal business address supplied by them. Many of them have a range of services, including an actual office if you really want it.
  • Online presence. Building a website couldn’t been easier. There are online website builders that make building a great website, including linking up with Google, very easy for anyone. If you can use Microsoft Word, you can build a professional website in about 1 hour.
  • Printing. There will be times when you need a business card. Even if it is just to give someone your phone number in a bar. The more modern printing websites make everything a breeze. From designing your logo, setting up business card printing right through to envelopes printing, everything can be taken care of in a matter of minutes. The process is cheap and extremely cost effective. Your printing will be in the mail by the next day.
  • Phone. VOIP (Voice/Video Over Internet Protocol) phone systems are very cheap, and can be set up in a matter of minutes. You can buy a phone number in any country in the world, and you can use that to make calls anywhere. Choose a number near your clients so they only have to make local calls. Look at free applications and more sophisticated services – again available online.

That is all there is to it. You will be legal, operating tax free and completely professional in your presentation and communication management. Feel free to live on a beach as long as you have an Internet connection.
