What Serviced Offices Can Offer You, Which Leasing Can't
Leasing an office can be an expensive business and usually you will be tied into a long term contract for a number of years. The initial costs are high, that’s why choosing a serviced office can offer your business greater flexibility with the freedom to grow.
Here are just a few advantages of serviced offices:
When leasing an office you must factor the costs of your communication systems, telecoms, redecorating and furnishing into your budget. With no upfront capital investment required, serviced offices leave you free to set up and get running straight away.
Serviced offices can provide a great deal of flexibility both in price and the ability for your business to grow. With no fixed term contract you can minimise risk and increase the amount of space as necessary – or indeed downsize if necessary.
The monthly fees for serviced offices usually include all rates, utilities, maintenance, even your coffee and tea! So you don't have the headache of sorting out that blocked toilet - leaving you free to do what you do best, looking after your customers.
You’ll also have access to professional meeting space, often with boardrooms which can impress that vital client.
Location is key
Serviced offices are usually located in city centres or within key hubs in out of town business parks, providing you not only with excellent transportation links but often with a prestigious address.
Benefits for start-ups
Starting a business usually carries a great deal of risk which can be minimised with the easy-in, easy-out serviced office terms. A single monthly bill can also ease the stress of starting up.
Serviced offices also provide reception services which can help build a start up’s professional brand identity, without further cost.
Start-ups and home workers can also use ‘hot desks’, which provide all the benefits of the serviced office at a reduced rate helping to ease the transition of working from home to office.
Finally, the networking opportunities within a serviced office cannot be overlooked enabling you to meet lots of like-minded business people and make smart connections for you and your company.
