Investors who decided to open a company in Estonia have now the possibility to opt for a virtual office, a much more flexible and comfortable choice, allowing them to benefit from a professional office but without the cost implied by a traditional, physical location.  Furthermore, this type of office has managed to prove its efficiency over times due to its low startup costs and risks. The company owner can run his business from a distance, saving a lot of time by avoiding traffic and also saving money not being compelled to rent a physical space, employ people, pay utilities and certain taxes in Estonia.  
 
Below, we invite you to discover how an Estonian virtual office can help you. We are at your service if are planning on starting a business in Estonia.

Who are virtual offices suitable for and why?

 
Any business owner can use this service and take advantage of the benefits it offers, but there are certain types of setups that would especially benefit from a virtual office in Estonia due to their particular characteristics. These are either new companies established by foreign investors, that can use this method when they first set up their business, or already registered companies in Estonia that need a point of contact in another city. The manager can start by using a virtual office and then, if his business grows according to his expectations, can decide to invest further. 
 
There are also businesses that do not require any actual company setup in Estonia, but rather just a simple method of maintaining communication with their business partners in this country. They could benefit too from the advantages offered by a professional and prompt virtual office in Estonia.

Virtual office services available for foreigners in Estonia

 
The virtual office is a suitable option for those seeking to establish a temporary presence in Estonia with the purpose of prospecting the market before deciding on a permanent settlement. However, it must be noted that the Estonian virtual office will not work as a liaison or representative office, as their functions are different.
 
First of all, the virtual office is a service which is based on a contract and which covers the following:
 
  1. a local address that is usually available in a renowned business center with easy access;
  2.  a local phone number to be contacted (secretary services can also be added to this service);
  3. voicemail services can also be requested in addition to the phone number;
  4. mail services for those interested in receiving notifications at this address;
  5. bank statement collection is also available for those who want to benefit from such facilities;
  6.  meeting room services which require prior notification for booking.
 
None of the services above are mandatory – they all are optional – and you can choose any of them in accordance with your needs. What should be noted is that in most cases foreign clients will use the local address for various purposes.
 
Our company formation agents in Estonia can provide detailed information on the best uses of a virtual office and the benefits of such a service.
 

How can a businessperson use an Estonian virtual office?

 
The virtual office usually targets companies and entrepreneurs as it can have multiple uses. Even if it can also be used by natural persons, this service has practical uses, among which:
 
  • - it can be used as a registered address upon the incorporation of any type of company;
  • - it can also be used as a contact point for local business partners;
  • - it can be used as a local address for clients to better relate to a business.
 
The Estonian virtual office can be used by the following categories of clients:
 
  • - local or foreign single entrepreneurs;
  • - local or foreign companies.
 
The virtual office is one of the simplest business address solutions that can be employed when running a company. In the context in which Estonia offers e-residency, this is one of the most suitable options for foreign entrepreneurs who have obtained it and who want to have a presence in this country even if they are in another state.

Virtual office packages

 
In most cases, the virtual office comes as package made of several services such as those presented above.
 
The most reliable service used by clients is the local address which can be used for receiving mail and other materials as a communication facility. The location of the address in notable business centers is also a strong point when associated with the low cost of this service.
 
Virtual offices usually come equipped with all the communications means possible, such as a phone number that can be connected to an answering machine and fax (forwarding services can also be integrated), a high-speed internet connection and conference call options.
 
Our company registration consultants in the Estonia can offer more information on the services attached to a virtual office in Tallinn or any other large city in this country.
 

Virtual office vs. liaison office in Estonia

 
Sometimes, the virtual office is mistaken for an Estonian representative office. However, the basic and most important differences between them resides in the fact that the latter is acknowledged by the Estonian Company Law, while the other is not.
 
Even if in terms of functions, these seem to offer the same facilities, there are also important differences from this point of view, as the representative office can be seen as an extension of a foreign company (therefore it can only be used by foreign enterprises), just like the branch office but with limited operations on the Estonian market. The virtual office can be used by natural persons who want to have an address in Estonia.
