Technology advice for small businesses

You do not necessarily need an office to run a small business; a virtual office could be all you need. Or with the advent of even more technology, you may not even need that.

The critical thing for any business is that customers can contact you and your team whenever they need to, whether that is at an actual office or a virtual one.

With the rapid development of technology, we have increasingly seen companies move away from the traditional office-based culture, to remote and home working, but there are now also companies that have no office premises at all. Until recently, these businesses generally had to use virtual office services, which provide things like telephone answering and mail forwarding.

With the advent of converged services that bring together fixed-line, mobile and even internet telephone services, such as those offered from BT Business, along with laptops and devices that allow mobile email access, you are always contactable, no matter where you are. As a result, virtual office services may be overkill.

In terms of your business address, unless you’re looking for a specific location, you can very easily run your business from home. It’s worth talking to your lawyer and accountant about the financial and legal implications of doing this.
