According to the government, around 450,000 businesses will soon be exempt from paying ‘jobs tax’. As a result, with business owners likely to be encouraged to take on new staff, larger and better-equipped office space may be needed.
If your business is recruiting and it looks as though you are about to outgrow your existing premises, then there are a few key questions to ask yourself when deciding on the right office space for you.
What ‘The Budget’ means for your office space
The new relief measure is designed to encourage small businesses to hire either a first employee or to expand their existing workforce. It means that a privately owned firm can now hire one employee earning £22,400, or four workers at minimum wage, without having to pay national insurance contributions.
How to decide on the right office space for your business
- Location. It’s imperative that your new offices are easy for you, your staff and any prospective clients to get to. Good transport links are essential, and free parking is an added bonus.
- Facilities. Happy employees are likely to stay with the company longer, and offering amenities such as childcare facilities, a restaurant and a gym could turn a good job into a great job for your staff.
- Opportunity. If you’re a forward-thinking business owner, you will want to find a business premises that allows your company to grow. Unless you want to relocate on a regular basis, choosing a location that enables you to expand your office space could prove vital.
