If you are looking to grow your business throughout New Zealand or Australia, you may be considering establishing a branch in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city. However, you may find that you are struggling to find an office space for your Auckland-based team that fits within your budget. An office lease can be an expensive commitment that you may not have the funds or long-term insight to afford, especially if your business is a startup. An affordable and practical alternative to this is a coworking Auckland space. Here are five reasons why you should consider a coworking space over a traditional office for your business’ branch in Auckland:

1. Affordability

A lease on a private office space is an expensive commitment that can cost thousands of dollars per month and eat away at your company’s budget. In addition to rent, you are responsible for paying for all of the utilities used in your office, such as electricity and water. Additionally, when setting up your own office space, you need to pay for furniture, a receptionist, office supplies, and WiFi, among other costs. These costs can quickly add up and leave you with little financial freedom to take risks in your business. A coworking space solves all of these problems – for a flat rate that costs significantly less than the traditional office space each month, your business can have a central working space in Auckland that includes a receptionist, meeting rooms, desks, WiFi, a premium business address, and several other useful office amenities, giving your business more room to grow with fewer financial burdens.

2. Flexibility

As great as optimism is, business can be unpredictable, especially for startups. It can be difficult to know with certainty whether your company will still be in business or have the same budget just a few months in the future, and many commercial office landlords prefer leases of several years that can be costly to end prematurely and require a hefty deposit. With a coworking Auckland space, your team will have access to a central meeting space that is billed on a month-by-month basis, eliminating the need for a risky long-term commitment. If revenue drops, you won’t have to worry about paying for a lease that you can’t afford.

3. Convenience

Even if cost isn’t an issue for you, it can be time-consuming to set up an office space for your business. The time needed for hiring a receptionist, buying furniture, setting up internet, and decorating the space to make it match your brand could be better spent working on growing what really matters in your business. A coworking Auckland space does all the dirty work for you, providing you with a modern and practical working space without the hassle and time constraints of having to set it all up yourself and allowing your Auckland-based team to immediately sit down together and get to work.

4. Networking Opportunities

Professional contacts are vital for any business to grow, especially when a business has recently established a branch in a new city. When your business is cooped up inside of a private office, your team isn’t making nearly as many connections as they would be in a coworking space. Coworking spaces are filled with local freelancers, small businesses, and startups, all of which may be important contacts for your business’ Auckland branch down the line, and which your team will be able to interact with during their downtime in a coworking space. While professional social networks like LinkedIn exist for this purpose, coworking spaces expedite the networking process and make it easy for your team to meet face-to-face with a wide variety of Auckland-based professionals right from your office.

5. Location

Finding affordable office space in Auckland can be expensive and difficult, but with a coworking space centrally located in Auckland, your search is over. When you choose to operate your business in a coworking Auckland space, you will have greater access to all that the city has to offer for a significantly lower cost than the traditional office space. Many businesses cannot afford office space in central Auckland, but a coworking space eliminates this problem, opening up your company’s Auckland branch to greater business opportunities.
