A property development company based in Brighouse is launching a new virtual office scheme designed to benefit start up and satellite businesses.

Henderson Property’s HP Virtual Office scheme will offer businesses access to standard virtual office amenities such as communication and address services, but will also include additional benefits such as discounted rates on business insurance, accountancy and advertising.

The idea, which is the brainchild of Henderson Property managing director Graeme Henderson, will see the company partner with local businesses across the Calderdale area that have a strong reputation within their field and wish to promote their services through a discounted rate or special offer as part of the scheme.

Mr Henderson commented: “What will set this apart from run-of-the-mill virtual office schemes is the wide range of benefits that our customers will get.

“This will range from helpful administration services such as free telephone answering, meeting room hire and printing and scanning services, to areas including energy services, website design and advertising.”

The company’s virtual office scheme is aimed at those who are not ready for a ‘bricks and mortar’ office.

Henderson Property has contributed to the redevelopment of The Boathouse, The Coach House, and former textile mill Thornhill Brigg Mills.

Mr Henderson added: “We currently have 100 per cent occupancy with a waiting list for space, and our new conversions have been fully let almost immediately upon completion.

“This has been a continuous trend over the last ten years and we’re now aiming to expand into the virtual office market.”
