Office Space – Closer to London
Posted on Jun 7, 2012 in Serviced Office Articles | Comments Off
We all know the closer you get to London the more expensive everything becomes. Be it property, fuel, clothing or even a simple cup of coffee everything costs more down south! So when it comes to choosing the best location for your serviced office London may not be the best option for your company.
Of course London has a lot to offer any potential business. Viewed by most as a sought after location London is the place to get noticed. London has great transport links to other areas of the UK as well as major airports serving the rest of the world. With its diverse communities and millions of tourists flocking to the capital every year there is no shortage of customers. Not to mention top schools and universities spilling out well educated, motivated and ambitious young people looking for work.
But as a business you need to think about your bottom line, and if your overheads are too high maybe you should consider locating your company elsewhere. The reduction in rent alone will make quite a substantial difference to your company profits.
If you are keen to stay close to London you may find moving away from the centre would be just far enough to lower your expenses. If you still want to rent a serviced office Reading, Luton or Milton Keynes all have plenty to offer at far more reasonable rates. All have thriving city centres with all the usual bars, shops and attractions. However being away from London, they have a more distinctive feel of their own that may be of benefit to some companies that like to offer a more personal service. Visiting clients would be relieved not to have to battle their way through central London to get to you!
Newly developed serviced offices are popping up all around the outskirts of London encouraging companies to relocate to reduce costs, and congestion within the city centre. New business helps to regenerate areas that may have experienced some decline over recent years due to the recession, which causes many businesses to close their doors for the last time.
With the advances in technology and excellent transport links across the country there is no need to feel pressured to keep your serviced office London. If your business is good enough, you are prepared to work hard and you have a good team working with you, you will be successful wherever you are located.
