Serviced offices are for big businesses too

Serviced offices provide practical working space for larger businesses who want hassle free office accommodation

Elmfield, a Hexagon Business Centre

Most people associate serviced offices with start-ups or small businesses, but they also provide practical working space for larger businesses who want hassle free office accommodation.

So why might a business with 10- 12 employees want a serviced office rather than renting their own office premises? The main reason is that it is hassle free – the business centre manager worries about all the facilities leaving the business owner to concentrate on the actual running of the business.

Larger businesses that employ around 12 people might well be advised to look at a larger serviced office on a financial basis and a professional appearance basis. Other benefits include:

Flexibility – business centres offer easy in easy out licences, often on a shorter term

Easier admin – the monthly licence fee includes business rates and services like electricity, water and sometimes broadband, so there is no need for any administration resource

Cleaning of the communal areas – visitors and staff will enjoy the smart common areas, the cloakrooms and kitchens that will be cleaned without you worrying about employing cleaners

Networking - opportunity to meet other business owners and tenants

Staff welfare - some centres like Hexagon’s Elmfield have a café on site for staff to visit for lunch and to get out of the office for a break

Appearance – the professional look and feel of a business centre makes it as good if not better than many small leased offices

Cost – the amount per square ft. might be cheaper with a leased office, but with the additional costs of rates, maintenance and services, the total is often similar to an inclusive business centre licence fee

Budgeting - with a fully inclusive monthly fee that is collected by direct debit, budgeting is easy

Hexagon’s new business centre at Elmfield in Witney has a number of bigger offices to suit larger businesses that employ up to 12 people. Many of the large offices in the recently refurbished business centre have unique architectural features, a separate space for meetings or staff relaxation, or an individual office with a larger open plan office.
