Virtual office package in Sweden
A virtual office in Stockholm can be a good solution to set up the Nordic headquarters of a company. A virtual office can be reserved at any time during the existence of the company, although it is common for entrepreneurs to choose this option from the very beginning, as there can be significant cost advantages, depending on the industry in which the company activates.
Small and medium-sized companies that offer consulting, management, accounting or legal services, as well as web design companies, and many other technology companies can benefit from these types of services. However, a virtual office in Stockholm is also an option for a large business that wishes to test the Swedish market or one that has a business model in which part of the employees can work remote. Starting with 2020, more companies have adopted a remote or hybrid work model in which the employees are not required to be present in the office at all times. If this is the case for your company, a virtual office can be a suitable solution.
