Choosing the right business location


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.


Commercial Property Leases

When starting or growing your business, you may need to decide whether to buy commercial property or enter into a commercial lease.  At this stage, it's advisable to seek professional business advice. Accountants, solicitors and other business advisers can advise whether it's in your best interests to buy or lease your business premises and equipment, as well as the tax implications of each option.
