Taking your business to the next level

Sep 8, 2017 | Business Centre

Last year saw the release of government data showing a record 80 businesses were being set up by entrepreneurs in the UK every single hour. That’s well over 700,000 across a year, if it kept up at the same pace.

Leeds alone saw over 3,600 businesses set up in the first six months of 2016. Of course, some of these people might be serial entrepreneurs and some might be taking their first steps into being a business owner.

It must be hard to know where to start and, depending on the type of business, some people might have business loans and stock to deal with, whereas for others a laptop and a phone is all they need.

Many people, understandably, try and work from home to start with to save costs. But you need to be motivated to keep that TV switched off and not get sidetracked by the overflowing washing basket or the DIY that needs doing!

Some people find it lonely, and hence the high numbers of people on laptops you see working in coffee shops! Plus, it’s easy to find that it becomes overwhelming working from home – especially if you have lots of ‘stuff’. Spare rooms and kitchen tables can be overflowing, and it can be hard to switch off when your work space is the same as your living space.

Which is why our serviced business centre works so well for entrepreneurs, new and more experienced alike!

Conveniently based on the outskirts of Leeds’ city centre, it’s handy for road and public transport connections and just 10 minutes from the railway station. There’s also plenty of free parking available on site – a bonus anywhere near the centre of a city nowadays!

We have offices varying in size, making them suitable for everything from a one man band to a small enterprise. Perfect for a growing business, you can always start out in a smaller size office, and we will try our hardest to accommodate you if you decide you need to move up a size or two!

The bonus of our serviced offices is everything is made easy – great for those entrepreneurs who want to spend their time running their business, not managing facilities. Unless facilities management is your line of work, of course…

All your business rates, and utilities are included, and offices are fully furnished. All have telephone and high speed broadband connections. There’s no long term contracts, so you don’t have to over commit at a time when you’re not ready.

We offer a central reception area, where a receptionist will answer your phone with the name of your company before transferring it to you, or taking a message if you’re unavailable. Similarly, they’re on hand to offer a professional welcome to guests, and to accept parcels when you’re out and about.

You’ll also benefit from shared meeting rooms, which can be booked as you need them, in addition to well equipped kitchen facilities, including free tea and coffee, and an informal, cafe style area with a plasma TV, to relax in, or use for brainstorming. If the sun’s shining, enjoy a coffee on our sun trap of a balcony. There’s even a shower if you want to cycle to work, or head to the gym en route.

We know every business is different, so if you’re a night owl, you can get access round the clock, and all offices are individually alarmed. And don’t forget we also have a self storage facility on the same site – so if you also need some extra storage space for stock, it’s ideally placed just a few short steps away. Don’t clutter up your office or your home if you don’t need to!

If the ‘Full Monty’ isn’t for you, we offer many other tailored solutions for businesses – from virtual offices, to mailing addresses and meeting rooms for hire.

So, whether you’re a new business starting out and wanting the flexibility to get things off the ground without committing to a lengthy contract, or whether you’re a long-time business owner, who is ready to take the next step – why not give us a call?
