The popularity of home-based businesses is set to continue, according to the National Federation of Enterprise Agencies (NFEA).NFEA chief executive George Derbyshire claims that "many of today's business operations can be run with a mobile or by email" and says that the low start-up costs associated with home-based companies is attractive to many entrepreneurs."New business owners can focus on getting their business off the ground first and foremost without the risk or financial pressure of workspace overheads," he explains.The trend of "virtual incubation" is also said to be increasing in popularity, with companies increasingly opting to use the facilities of business incubation centres, such as meeting rooms, IT support and telephone services - without having to rent permanent office space.NFEA comprises a network of local enterprise agencies and other organisations and offers advice and guidance to growing businesses within the UK.
