What is a serviced office?
A serviced office is a flexible workspace that businesses can use for their main day to day work premises. Serviced offices are used by all sizes and types of businesses and can be used for short or long term time periods.
The flexibility of the packages is key in the serviced office offering as it enables businesses to start quickly and expand when needed without the long-term commitment associated with traditional offices.
Another big benefit of serviced offices is that they come fully fitted and furnished ready with everything you need to get started.

Serviced office vs traditional office - what are the benefits?
Flexibility is a key benefit of serviced offices over traditional offices. Traditional offices come with long-term leases so it can be hard to expand or contract quickly. As a result there can often be an inefficient use of space. The serviced office term at JustOffice can be for a short as one month and there is no limit on the duration.
A traditional office is usually an empty space so all furnishings need to be sourced and paid for by you. Whereas at a serviced office, everything is included. This includes the office furniture but also items from the pantry like mugs, cutlery and other kitchen equipment.
Everything is included in one single monthly payment - rent, rates, water, electric, aircon, cleaning, garbage, wifi, coffee/tea.
All these benefits save you money as you do not need to lock into any long-term agreements with suppliers and importantly they save you valuable time in sourcing and maintaining.
