The Benefits of Short Term Office Lets

In uncertain times, it is hard to commit to anything. It’s hard to know when is best to book a flight, to plan a wedding and you certainly don’t want to be tied to a long term rental agreement for a workspace you may not use. When you’re looking for office space, a licence agreement is usually one or more years but for start-ups or those uncertain about the future, you’ll want to reduce the risks involved. That’s why short term office rental is an ideal solution. It’s ideal for individuals or businesses who want to ensure business continuity while keeping staff as comfortable and safe as possible. Here are some top benefits of renting a short term office space:

Serviced Offices

You will often find that when you find a short term let, it is a serviced office. A serviced office is a furnished and fully-equipped pay-as-you-use office space, where you can rent a desk, a room or an entire floor depending on your business needs. While a permanent office space usually has a long term licence agreement, hidden costs like maintenance and facility costs, furnishing & equipment installations and utility bills each month, serviced offices are turn-key, ready to work in and offer transparent monthly, all-inclusive fees. This type of flexible workspace is part of a growing global trend as businesses look for more agile ways of managing office space to accommodate flexible working, upscaling or downsizing or for peace of mind during uncertain times.


One of the main benefits of serviced office space is the flexibility it offers. You don’t have to sign a lease that will tie you to a premises or make a financial commitment for 12 months. At any stage during the year, you can give us two months’ notice and evacuate your office space with no further financial obligation. You can, of course, sign a longer term agreement if you are comfortable and wish to continue with your licence agreement.

These days, companies expect a lot of flexibility from their landlords – a commitment we are willing to make. If you are a small company starting your business journey or a large-scale operation looking to upsize your office space, we can accommodate you. On the other hand, if you have employees working from home or a hot desk policy in your company, you only pay for the space you use.

We’re also an ideal choice for businesses who are constructing or remodelling their permanent business location but don’t want to have any disruption to businesses processes. A short term let is a good way of ensuring continuity so you don’t have to lay off your employees or stop selling your products or services.

Premier Business Centres offer a range of serviced office locations for long or short term lets. This allows your employees to choose which office location suits them best, offering a better work/life balance. There is no need for employees to travel across the city to get to work when we have locations ranging from City West to Swords.

The Benefits of Short Term Lets During Covid-19

In the past year, there has been an understandably huge expansion of employees working from home. As a result, we anticipate that many employees and employers will adopt a flexible working policy going forward. With many employees choosing to work from home, companies will need less permanent office space, meaning less fixed cost per month. Using a serviced office allows you to gauge exactly what space you’ll need without paying for unused space. If for any reason you need the entire team in the office for a temporary project, you can rent additional space for a shorter term.

When you have a permanent business premise, the onus is on the company to manage Covid 19 infection prevention and control. Employers need to nominate a member of staff dedicated to cleaning, surveying and ensuring all controls and guidelines are adhered to. When you choose to let from Premier Business Centre, we do the hard work for you with a nominated Covid Compliance Office dedicated to ensuring the safety and comfort of staff and guests.
