Business growth often leads to more staff, expanding operations or increased production. This, in turn, can easily create a situation where you outgrow your current business premises.
Options for larger business premises
There are options available to help you meet the demands of your growing business. You could:
- Extend your current premises – although to do this, you may need planning permission. Also consider whether the building work will disrupt your operations. Access planning advice and guidance for businesses.
- Rent property – see advantages of renting business premises.
- Buy property – see advantages and disadvantages of buying business property.
Managing the move to new premises
If you decide to move to new business premises, you will want to minimise disruption. Have a clear plan for moving. Provide instructions to staff and create a consistent labelling and packing system. You could hire a professional removals firm. This may minimise legal risks of personal injury or property damage.
