“The interest in virtual offices has increased in annual terms, which is confirmed by our analysis,” said Petra Štěpánová, analyst of Bisnode, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The majority of companies with a virtual office have been established in the past three years, during which the number of such firms exceeded 3,000.

“For comparison, in 2014 only 1,765 companies used a virtual office,” Štepánová added, as quoted by TASR, adding that companies with virtual addresses can pose a higher risk in business.

Currently, 38,206 limited liability companies and 1,684 joint-stock companies have a virtual address. Since the beginning of this year, the number of companies with a virtual office has increased by 3,363, while last year it was 3,557 and the year before 3,494.

The most favoured localities include Karpatské Námestie in Bratislava’s Rača district (1,675 companies) and Kopčianska Street in Bratislava (1,472 firms), TASR reported.
