Tax season is approaching, and it’s coming fast. No one understands the pressures of a quickly approaching deadline better than Certified Public Accountants (CPAs). A unique breed of professionals who love numbers and paperwork, they thrive on the thrill of seeking out deductions and credits that save their clients money. For the CPAs who not only love what they do but love being able to do it from anywhere, we’ll explain why a virtual office is an excellent solution for you!
When it comes to the world of CPAs and virtual offices, the only thing more confusing than figuring out tax codes and allowable deductions is figuring out where they work. While numbers are the first love of most accountants, the ability to work from the comfort of their homes, on their own schedule, is a close second and the reason why virtual offices are becoming the new norm for accountants across the globe.
A virtual office offers CPAs a place they can hide from the world, crunching numbers in their pajamas in the comfort of their home or sipping Mai Tai on the beach, all while maintaining a professional image. Gone is the worry of clients meeting in home offices with kids and pets underfoot or empty take-out containers on the desk. With a virtual office, clients will only see a prestigious business address, a top-notch tech-filled meeting room, and a friendly receptionist at the front desk.
If we can get serious for a moment, virtual offices aren’t just for introverted accountants. They are the perfect match for traveling CPAs, the work-from-home parents/CPAs, and all other CPAs who hate having to dress professionally on the daily. With a virtual office, you have the luxury of working from the location of your choice, where your only concern is wifi. That means you can work at the beach, the park, or while globetrotting with friends.
A virtual office offers many conveniences, such as lower overhead costs, a professional appearance, the ease of working from anywhere, and more. When you have an Opus Virtual Office, you get the benefits of live call reception, real-time call logs, digital mail sorting, and the convenience of any of our 650 locations. That means you can service more clients, crunch more numbers, and get more done before Tax Day, April 18, 2023 – when tax returns must be filed without penalty.
But before you run off to set up your virtual office, you should know a few things. First, it can be challenging to meet with clients face-to-face. But let’s be honest. Most CPAs aren’t exactly great at small talk, so this might not be such a bad thing. Second, virtual offices aren’t suitable for all types of businesses. If you’re a CPA who specializes in setting up farm equipment, a virtual office probably isn’t going to cut it.
In conclusion, virtual offices are an excellent option for CPAs who want to save money on overhead costs, maintain a professional image, and work from the comfort of their own homes (or beds). Just be sure it’s the right fit for your business, and don’t forget to wear pants when you’re on a video call!
