Birmingham is known as Britain’s second city and has the largest population outside of the capital. Birmingham’s economy is the second largest in the United Kingdom and it is a burgeoning commercial centre, making it an ideal location in which to rent office space for any new business owner.
The city is a centre of excellence for higher education with three universities and two university colleges and is held in high esteem in the academic world. Birmingham is also held in high regard from a cultural viewpoint and boasts the Barber Institute of Fine Art, the Birmingham Royal Ballet and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Its cultural attractions are complemented by the Bullring shopping centre, the Birmingham NEC and many fine bars and restaurants located in Broad Street. Any visiting clients will be well catered for with such a variety of entertainment within Birmingham’s confines.
Accessibility is vital when setting up your business’s office and Birmingham is well served by trains, trams, buses and planes. This is expected to improve even further with the announcement of a high speed train link to London. You will be able to create a favourable image of your business by locating your office in a cosmopolitan city with excellent transport links.
Serviced office rental in Birmingham
A number of well-known companies have already made Birmingham their base. Cadbury products, HP sauce and the Austin Mini were all produced in Birmingham. The success of such companies goes to show why many businesses consider Birmingham a good base in which to set up their head offices. Most businesses do not want to lock themselves into a long term arrangement as there is uncertainty in the economy. The renting of conventional offices will involve entering into a medium or long term arrangement with a lease regulating terms of occupancy. The lease is often complicated and expensive legal fees are inevitable as the terms often require amendment before agreements are made. Although you may be able to exit from the lease if circumstances change, there are usually expensive break clauses, meaning there could be financial repercussions if you do terminate the arrangement.
Serviced offices are usually let on a short term arrangement, for months rather than years. They are governed by a simple licence agreement rather than a lease and there are no expensive break clauses and no need to engage a lawyer. The savings you make in lawyers’ fees can be put towards your monthly rental payment. Serviced offices come fully furnished with all office furniture, IT systems and telephony services provided.
Renting serviced offices in Birmingham is a good choice, especially in today’s economy. Serviced offices afford flexibility and are a time-saving solution for any busy business owner.
