Choosing where to work from: Leased office space


Leased office space is really only suitable for a larger business. Apart from the fact that a new business will probably have to lodge a rent deposit, the signing of a lease will normally involve a commitment for a number of years, a liability which could be difficult to escape if things don’t work out well.

There will also be legal costs involved, as with leased office space, it is essential that a solicitor reviews the lease documentation.

Most leased office space is let unfurnished so it will be necessary for you to invest in office furniture, telephone equipment and IT infrastructure – so your capital expenditure could be significant.

This is rarely an option for the new start up business unless there are special circumstances.
