Energy price cap
The regular review of the energy price cap over the last few months has highlighted that the population is likely to face a very challenging winter ahead. With fast rising energy bills and extortionate grocery prices there is no denying that the UK cost of living has soared tenfold over the last 18 months and unfortunately is predicted to continue to do so, for the foreseeable future. This blog explores how your business could reduce the it’s costs by using a serviced office space.
October 2022 Price Cap
Having just experienced the October price cap and more scheduled for 2023, we wait with bated breath knowing that we are going to feel the pinch even further over the next 18 months. Here are some reasons why using a space at Bloxham Mill could help to free up some pennies for you and your team.
What is a serviced office?
A serviced office is a fully furnished private workspace in a shared building which offers the ideal space for you (and your colleagues – if you have them) to meet and work. A serviced office provides you with the perfect cost-effective workspace, without the drag of having to set it up, furnish it, set up utilities contracts and maintain it.
Here at Bloxham Mill, our serviced offices are fully furnished and can be laid out to suit you and how you run your business. That might mean a traditional office with desk space and break out meeting room area or perhaps a studio for recording videos or even designing clothes. You could even use an office as an off-site meeting space for clients or employees.
Why choose a serviced office over a traditional long-lease office?
Serviced offices at Bloxham Mill offer the benefit of a fixed cost each month. This is different to a traditional long-lease office rental where amenities, utilities and maintenance are charged on top of basic ground rent. The all-inclusive price that we offer here at Bloxham Mill protects your business from an unpredictable economy. The fixed price covers ground rent and all of the below:
- Business rates
- Service charge
- Kitchen facilities as well as the cleaning and maintenance of this space
- Cleaning (daily clean, including supplies)
- Utilities (gas/electricity/water)
- Connectivity (provision of full fibre internet/leased line and maintenance of)
- Facilities (furniture, meeting rooms, cabling)
- Reception services
- Registered Address
- Car Parking
- Mail Handling and post services
This price model offers transparency and allows our clients the ability to budget accurately over a period of time.
When all these costs are factored in, serviced offices become a more cost-effective base for your business.
Here at Bloxham Mill, as a serviced office client, included in your price, you also get access to our recently refurbished shared space The Hive. This offers the perfect break-out space if you fancy a change of scene, coffee with a client or colleague or need a meeting room, all without having to leave the site.
