Guide

Choose the right type of premises

Introduction

One of the most important things to think about when you start-up in business is your premises.

There's a lot to consider, and you'll have to make some important decisions about what you need and what you can afford. It's best to start by thinking about your needs.

Look at how your business will run and list the things that are important to it. A few examples might include plenty of space, fast broadband, or a busy location. Or you might be able to run your business from home, keeping costs down.

This guide includes videos to help you choose the right type of premises for your new business.
