NEW YORK – Just as U.S. companies turn to virtual offices to set up satellite locations or test new markets in various cities overseas, more international companies are beginning to explore the benefits of entering the U.S. market via a virtual office.
According to BizFilings.com, foreign companies need to name a registered agent in their state of incorporation, and the registered agent must have a physical address in the state of incorporation. The virtual office takes care of that second part. Virtual office services can accept mail on behalf of the registered agent.
Opus Virtual Offices is reporting a big uptick in the number of international clients tapping its virtual office programs to help get the incorporation ball rolling in the U.S. International companies can’t use a P.O. Box in order to incorporate. With a prestigious physical address from a virtual office provider, companies from around the world can easily meet that requirement and access many other virtual office services.
“Opus has been thrilled to see the dramatic increase in international companies choosing our virtual office solution to incorporate in the U.S.,” says Yori Galel, CEO of Opus Virtual Offices. “Without the expense and logistics of travel and setting up physical offices, they immediately obtain corporate addresses giving them the opportunity to acquire U.S. branch offices, each for the nominal fee of $99.”
From large corporations seeking maximum visibility with minimum expenditure to smaller businesses looking to enter the international marketplace, satellite offices in the U.S. seem essential. Many companies wanting to compete in the global market find that the Opus product offers a comprehensive solution without the traditional high overhead.
International companies can obtain prestigious corporate addresses in just about any city in the United States with a growing number of virtual office providers – and all major cities. And, again, virtual office providers give you more than a physical street address. Virtual office packages also typically include a phone number, fax numbers, live receptionists and other professional perks.
