The number one benefit of a virtual office is that you don't have to list your home address on any of your business paperwork.

Lastly, you can avoid the expense and obligation of a long term lease by using a virtual office business service.
Can I use my registered agent address as my business address?
No. A registered agent office and address must be staffed during normal business hours and be available to accept service of process. A virtual office address does not fulfill that requirement.

Can I Use My Virtual Address as My Primary Office Space?
Most virtual offices do not offer physical office space. Since they are "virtual", business owners use them to primarily receive mail and provide a commercial business address for letterhead, business card, website and vendor registration purposes. If you need actual office space, a virtual office is not your best choice. A virtual office service usually offers a business mailing address and phone service and conveys a very professional image.

It only takes a day or two to obtain your virtual office business services and suite number. Once your payment is received, there are some USPS forms that must be completed prior to the issuance of your address.
