What are the costs for a virtual office in Hungary?

The costs for a virtual office in Hungary will vary based on the types of services that you need for your company, the location where the office is located and others. As a general rule, all virtual offices in Hungary are located in business areas, which can offer a business identity to your company. 

One can select a virtual office that is located in the center of the city, in which case, the monthly costs will be higher, or in business areas or business area that can be scattered across the city. In these latter situations, the costs can be lower, but this does not necessarily apply, if the said locations are rated as top quality buildings. 

Regardless of the place where you will choose to have your business address, you should know that the fees charged for the services of a virtual office will always be considerably lower compared to renting a traditional office space, this being the most important advantage of a virtual office.

In the list below, our team of specialists in company registration in Hungary have prepared a short presentation regarding the types of contracts you can sign for the services of a virtual office

  • contracts signed for 1 month (they can be renewed from one month to the other);
  • 6 months contracts;
  • 12 months contracts;
  • 24 months contracts.

If you opt for contacts signed for a longer period of time, the overall price will decrease. It must be noted that you can find virtual office services providers in various Hungarian cities. Outside Budapest, you can easily find virtual office providers in cities such as Debrecen, Szeged and Pecs.

We mention that those who will opt for the most complex virtual office package can pay up to EUR 2,500 per month, while the simplest virtual office package, the one that offers a business address, can cost around EUR 100, but there is the possibility to find this service at even lower prices (EUR 50), depending on the location.

On the opposite side, renting a traditional office space can have much higher costs. Of course, the average cost will be influenced by the size of the office, which can be determined by the necessary number of employees and company’s activities.

What are the advantages of a virtual office in Hungary?

If you want to open a company in Hungary and you do not dispose of a large capital or you are a first-time businessman, the virtual office can become the ideal solution for your business, as it does offer multiple advantages and it cuts numerous concerns of a businessperson who is in the beginning stages of a business. 

First, as said above, the virtual office has very low costs compared to renting, buying or building an office space. Then, it offers a registered business address, and this is a compulsory requirement during the process of company formation in Hungary, as all commercial entities in this country must have an address where they can be reached by the local authorities, clients and partners. 

It provides certain advantages on employment matters, as the employees of the company do not have to be present in the office in order to perform their professional duties. Due to this, investors can hire workforce from any country and not be limited by geographical boundaries. 

The virtual office can be an advantageous way to kick-start a business, as in the first years of activities investors face the largest number of challenges, financial or otherwise. However, this type of office is not suitable for all business types – it is ideally suited for small businesses, with only few employees or for companies that can carry their business operations through the internet. 

Another advantage is that it eliminates the worries regarding operating costs of the company – paying the rent, utility bills, purchasing office furniture and office supplies, complying with various health and safety measures when building an office space, obtaining business permits for the respective space and others. 

All these fall under the responsibility of the entities that provide virtual office services, while the investors who purchase such services will be seen as paying customers who simply use such services without having to deal with any of the above.
