The type of premises will depend on your business. For example, if you sell products, this can involve deciding the best location to set up a retail shop and exploring the buying or leasing property options available in that area.
Or if you provide professional services, you might choose long or short-term leasing options depending on your business needs, to allow you to conduct your customer and business meetings from a central location.
Examples of business premises include a:
- warehouse, manufacturing plant or storage facility
- retail premises
- home office, typically used by home-based business
- shared commercial office or hub
- temporary premises, such as a market stall or pop-up business.
