What are the benefits of a virtual office in Georgia?
A virtual office can be a great option for those interested in opening a company in Georgia. This is given by the fact that one of the registration requirements imposed to any local business is to have an official business address and the virtual office can be used for this purpose, thus avoiding renting or purchasing a location where the company can set up its business operations.
The virtual office can be a great solution in the case of those who want to start a small business in their own name (for example, through a sole trader), who do not dispose of the necessary financial means to rent premises that can be used as a business office.
At the same time, the virtual office can be selected by businessmen who have registered a start-up or by any type of company that does not need to carry its business activities in a traditional manner.
Virtual office in Georgia – employment advantages
When referring to employment, the virtual office can also have a positive effect on the company, as well as on the company’s employees.
Considering that the services of a virtual office are selected mainly with the purpose of having a fixed place where the company’s partners and clients can find the businessman, but also with the purpose of having a prestigious business address, the company’s activities will generally be developed from a remote location.
This also applies to the company’s employees, who are not required to be present in the office. Instead, they can develop their daily tasks from any given location.
Since they can carry their activity from literally any place, the company can extend its employment base outside the city/region where it is located and thus, it can benefit from a larger talent pool, which also includes foreign markets.
Our team of consultants in company registration in Georgia can assist businessmen with advice on how to employ foreign workforce; our representatives may provide an extensive presentation on the types of employment contracts that can be used in this case and the tax obligations applicable when hiring local workforce.
Our team can also represent investors in the procedures for tax registration, including for VAT registration in Georgia.
What are the current statistics on remote work?
Remote work can be associated with numerous ways of carrying a business activity. While for businesses developed in a traditional way (where employees arrive in the office on a daily basis) remote work is less common, for companies that operate through a virtual office, the employees can work remotely.
Working from a remote location became increasingly popular in the last years, and this is given by the fact that the internet services expanded at a fast pace and it is now used at a means for selling various products and services, but also as one of the main communications tools, including in the business environment.
Since numerous types of work activities are mainly based on using a computer program and do not necessarily need constant interaction with other departments in a company, numerous companies have discovered a wide range of advantages in offering remote work activities. Some of the most common trends are presented below:
- 65% of the companies involved in a study regarding the employment trends declared that they allow their employees to work from a remote location (in a study that comprised 1000 businesses);
- the highest rate (of 69%) was registered in the case of large companies (employing more than 500 employees);
- the lowest rate (of 55%) was registered in the case of medium sized companies;
- 47% of all the companies participating in the study have created a system comprised of both remote work and office work;
- 67% of the participants have mentioned that work activities developed from a remote location are considered productive;
- only 7% of the participants mentioned that working from a remote location is seen as a non-productive activity;
- remote work is also possible in the case of public institutions, but when referring to educational institutions, the rate is very low, of only 12%, as most of the jobs need the daily presence of the company’s employees in the office;
- however, a high rate of governmental workers (of 70%) can work remotely, but in their case, their jobs combine remote work with fixed office hours.
