No Start-Up Costs - Conventional/Leasehold Office Space can cost anything from £5,000 (for a typical 3 person office) upwards to fit out. Serviced Offices come with everything you need, including facilities such as:
- ISDN Telephone systems and phones
- Desks and chairs
- Fax machines
- Broadband connections
- Break out areas
- Fit Out (if required)
- Meeting rooms
- Reception area
Immediate Availability - They come readily equipped allowingyou to start work immediately. They also cut out a possible 3-month-legal-process with trying to rent a Leased Office.
Flexible Licence agreement - Clients can sign a licence agreement, instead of lease, and move in the same day. This cuts out lengthy and expensive solicitor's fees.
Maintenance - Maintaining a leasehold property in the UK can be extremely costly whereas these are managed and maintain their own facilities.For example, if a light needs changing, or a toilet gets blocked, the management deal with it at no extra charge. You only need to focus on your business.
Wider Office Space Options - There are many of these flexible office locations over the country. Depending on the property, they can also offer anything from 10-200 offices to rent, allowing a much wider choice than the conventional property sector.
Expansion - Benefit from the first refusal on any additional office space that becomes available within the building. This is ideal if your business is likely to expand.
