TaxConnections has built Virtual Offices for tax professionals around the world; however, we want to tell you about our evolving iterations and updates. For those of you unfamiliar with TaxConnections Virtual Office, allow me to explain what it is and why it is important to have one. A Virtual Office enables you to conduct business from any location with cell phone access. While organizations have moved their businesses to the cloud, tax professionals are moving their businesses into the cloud and away from brick and mortar buildings. Early tax professional explorers are staking out virtual office space and acquiring prime cloud real estate. TaxConnections tax members and their virtual offices are already dominating space online.
What we imagined is now a reality, a “virtual office” in the cloud for tax professionals. It is a steady home base throughout a tax career where a tax professional can always be reached. It is a place where your mail always comes to you no matter what city or country you may be traveling. There are no brick and mortar real estate costs, and no landlord; you are free to work from any location on earth. Your entire business is in the cloud, and you are unencumbered and able to travel light.
What we also imagined are tax professionals having a backup plan in case of loss of electricity, flood, hurricane, snow storms, earthquakes, fires, etc. A Virtual Tax Office is your insurance policy against a disaster where all your phones and computer equipment are down due to some unforeseen event. What if your community was affected by a disaster and you no longer have access to the services you require to run your business. TaxConnections Members are up and running with their cell phones and online business during any disaster.
What happens if your business is hit by an electrical storm and blows out your internet switches and fries your equipment. What do you do? You first call your internet provider who is so busy with thousands of calls coming to them they are unable to take your call. You call your IT support people who are unable to do anything without internet connections. Your phones are down; you need to reach clients or discuss a new business opportunity. What do you do? You need a backup plan. You need insurance when things go wrong you can be up and running quickly to operate from a point in the cloud.
There are many selections we are making for the Virtual Offices and we have done so carefully after considerable research this past year. Over several posts we will introduce several components of Virtual Tax Offices and what they can do for you and your tax expertise. This week we will introduce the Virtual Mailbox for those of you who smartly want to set up a business address that leaves you free to travel anywhere in the world.
With TaxConnections, tax professionals have the ability to register for a Virtual Mailbox . Wherever you move or travel, your mail is opened, scanned and emailed to you daily. You can also request your private mail sent unopened and mailed to you wherever you request. The Virtual Mailbox is an extraordinary asset for our members who want to be free to roam and work. It is the best service and the lowest price on the market. Do not be fooled by the high priced services. This is economical which we know you appreciate.
In my next post, I will share with you our selection of a Virtual Phone System. There are many we researched and spoke directly to the companies; and we found a favorite one we tested, use now and are very happy with, and have been for a long time. You will learn about a virtual phone system that has no contract, forwards calls to your cell phone with a simple app, hooks into your computer so you can take it anywhere with you and plug it in, and the company even give you a phone you can hook up to your laptop. Oh, video conferencing, chat and phone support is also included. It is a wonderful virtual phone service and super thrifty. If your computer is down due to some electrical issue, you have a back-up app on your phone to have your business up and running within minutes. It is disaster proof phone system for any business and a perfect asset in your virtual office.
