What's the difference
between mail forwarding and a virtual office?
Although people may label
services differences, there are subtle but important differences
between a mail forwarding service and a virtual office.
A mail forwarding service, such
a UPS location, can forward your mail. This is basic.
A virtual office provides you the added benefit of a corporate
presence in Wyoming. If you seek to substantiate your
company's presence in Wyoming, then a virtual office is a better
idea. Virtual office services typically offer mail
forwarding. The virtual office; however, offers a wider
range of services to the business and provides more flexibility.
For example, the virtual office may also offer conference rooms,
secretarial and messaging services, etc.
What should the virtual
office look like?
A virtual office should be a
commercial office in an area zoned commercial. Don't use a
virtual office that's located in a residential area.
What about the phone number?
Many virtual offices provide a
phone number that they control. If they control your phone
number, they control your business. You're better off
using your cell phone number. The best solution for your
Wyoming corporation or Wyoming LLC is that you obtain a Market
Expansion Line with the telephone company CenturyLink.com.
What's a Market Expansion
This is a real telephone line
installed at the telephone company and the calls are forwarded
to any phone line of your choice. This means the calls
come in on a Wyoming area code of 307 and the calls are
forwarded to your cell phone or landline where you are. In
this way you maintain control of your business and you own the
phone number. If you don't like the virtual office
services, you may move and take the phone number with you.
There's no reason to start your
own business if you're going to give up control of the phone
number to someone who doesn't deserve it. After all,
you're starting a business to control your future and reach your
dreams. What's the point if you're going to hand control
to people who may not have your best interests at heart.
Maintain control by keeping dominance over the phone number.
You own it. Control it.
The Market Expansion Line also
enables you to register the phone number with 411 information
services. This also substantiates the company's presence
in Wyoming. A virtual number assigned to you by the
virtual office provider can't do that.
How much does a Market
Expansion Line cost?
$30-$50 a month depending on
Are there more economical
solutions for the phone number?
Yes, Efax.com offers a fax and
voice mail system that is less. It's not a landline but
you maintain control of the phone number.
What are PMB regulations and
how do they impact my Wyoming corporation or Wyoming LLC?
PMB is the acronym for Postal
Mail Box Regulations. Simply, if mail is being forwarded
from one address to another, you are supposed to place PMB on
the address so people know the mail is forwarded. There's
an exception involving registered agents. If the
registered agent is forwarding the mail, then you don't need to
label the address with a PMB. For this reason, you're
better off with the registered agent forwarding the mail rather
than a garden variety mail forwarding service.
