During Uncertain Times it Pays to Think Flexspace

flexible business leases for companiesIn modern times business owners and strategic decision makers, like you, have discovered the advantages that flexible business leases affords. This has been something that has been increasingly desired as a genuine commercial advantage.

With sales channels now often driven through internet-based contact, and the sheer volume of today’s web commerce, employers prefer flexible office space. This gives them the ability to change number of employees working from the head office almost at will.

‘Hot desking’ and agile working practices mean that staff are able to work just as easily from their own home as well from a traditional rented office. Flexible working, in all kinds of industrial sectors, has undergone something of a revolution in recent years.

Flexible Business Leases are Ideal in Uncertain Times

Even established businesses face challenges to their long-term plans. As such, short term leases of office space and shared administrative facilities is more in demand.

Flexspace is uniquely set up for rental of workshop space, light industrial units and offices to a wide cross section of British-based small businesses. So, there is nothing to stop businesses switching over to these sort of flexible and managed offices.

With locations as diverse as Newton Aycliffe, Watford, Swindon, Coventry and 50 more we cover the entire mainland UK. No matter where your workforce is drawn from, Flexspace can provide just the right amount of space. You can avoid paying out unnecessary rent that comes from overcapacity as we can offer larger premises when desired.

Flexibility is not just about offering staff greater control over they way they work, but it is also about minimising your costs.

The Questions for Business Posed by the EU Withdrawal

Overall, the outlook for the last eight years has been challenging and the Brexit vote means that the outlook remains uncertain. Anyone thinking strategically about their business beyond the next couple of years is still speculating.

Will the potential for withdrawal from the EEA, or common market, mean that UK businesses selling into Europe face tariffs? And will importing become more complicated?

Changes to freedom of movement of EU citizens who currently come to the UK may mean that hiring specialist staff becomes prohibitively expensive?
Will the fall in the buying power of the pound mean that British businesses with supply chains outside of the UK will face increased costs?

The answer is that no one knows, at least for now. However, there is universal agreement that the next couple of years are going to be choppy waters to navigate.

To remain a successful business on the other side of Brexit, you need to act now.

What Can Be Done?

Versatile Business PremisesMany forward thinking entrepreneurs share the same view of the most important factor for growth. Which is that you need to adjust your business to the changing needs of the market in the information age.

This means being elastic to the numbers of people on the payroll and that, in turn, means being able to adjust your overheads.

Companies offering adaptable working spaces, storage facilities and so on, like Flexspace, are not about downsizing when times get tough. They are equally concerned with offering businesses on a high growth pattern the ability to expand. But, only when they need to, in order to meet increased demand. Which is why their flexible business leases are perfect for modern business leaders.

Who knows? In the period after Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty is triggered, the UK may be able to sign trade deals with the likes of Singapore, India, Brazil. Which may lead to a boost in the economy.

So, opting for flexible working spaces in the UK is firstly about dealing with the challenges of your future trade in the internet age. Secondly, it is about handling the potentially tough times the country may face as it leaves the European Union.

One things for sure, if your company is nimble and flexible, the better positioned it will be to face the future. This includes thinking about your physical location.
