What Are Serviced Offices?

A serviced office is an office space which is generally available on short term leases of between a month and a year. You will pay a monthly license fee which will include all costs including the rent, any other rates, any service charges, furniture as well as other options such as using any reception facilities.

Serviced offices will normally be found in Business Centre’s; you will find that there will be other businesses located on separate floors. Your particular office space could be to lease the whole building, a couple of floors or just a single floor.

The Benefits of Using Serviced Offices!

  • Making use of serviced office carries a long list of benefits for your business, I will run through the most common and important benefits your business will receive.
  • Very low start-up costs
  • Usually the tenancy agreement will be simple and easy to understand and in most cases will not require any form of legal involvement.
  • There is only one monthly payment needed, which will cover everything in one go.
  • Offices will in most cases be ready to go, all fully furnished and ready to be moved into immediately.
  • Reception areas will usually be well maintained, allowing your clients and customers to wait in comfort whilst there will be professional receptionists who will aid you in the running of your business.
  • Short term agreements only, which ultimately mean you, will not be tied down into long leases.
  • The option of adding or decreasing the space you need as you go along.

Furnished Or Unfurnished?

If you go for a serviced office, it will in most cases mean that your office will either be part furnished or fully furnished. This is ideal if you want to get going straight away, however you can also go for a semi serviced office space which will often give you the choice of whether you want it to be furnished or not.

If you are just starting out in business and are yet to acquire your own furniture, a lease like this can be a godsend. Your office will be already for you to move into, with you not having to go about sourcing your own furniture and then having to figure out how to put the flat-pack stuff together.

Another bonus is that if you do decide to move on, you don’t have the problem of taking the furniture with you or selling it on.

Reception Facilities!

If your serviced office space is in a business centre it will often involve there being a centralised reception, it will also be manned by the business centre’s own receptionist who will take calls for your office and pass them through to you and greet your guests.

This is a great service, though of course it will come at a cost. Additionally they will offer further services such as typing, filing, faxing for a few examples.

Meeting Rooms!

Another great benefit is that you can pay for meeting rooms on a pay per use basis; this means that you do not have to lease your own space as part of the deal. This saves you money as a meeting room will only be used a few times a week, just pre-booking it for an hour or two a few times a week will be considerably less than paying rent on it each month.

You should now be that little bit wiser about what serviced offices can do for you and your business, so why not look for somewhere in London for your office? Office Space Liverpool Street based would be a good place to start.
