Perks for your business

This tenancy package is most popular with established small and medium sized businesses and we’re delighted to say many of our tenants on the standard package stay and grow with us for years.
Serviced Office Space FAQs
Do I need to pay business rates?
Yes. Business rates are payable to Calderdale Council and depend on the size of space being rented. We can have details of the applicable rates for each office and can assist new tenants in contacting the business rates team at the council to arrange. Business rates are not charged for co-working.
Do you provide help for start-ups?
Yes. Start-ups qualify for our start-up grant which subsidises the cost of your rent. The grants are paid by Halifax Opportunities Trust and cover 50% of your rent for businesses under 9 months old. This then moves to a 25% rental subsidy for businesses between 9-18 months old. We find this tapered approach to rental subsidies supports new start-ups to grow and develop during the most precarious time in a business’s life – the first two years.
Start-ups in receipt of the grant also have flexible lease terms of one month rolling contracts. This facility recognises that extended lease terms (even with break clauses) can be a barrier for start-ups and puts entrepreneurs at the heart of our business model.
After 18 months, start-ups move onto our standard office package terms.
How can I pay?
We can invoice you at the end of the month. Alternatively, we take all card payments at reception.
What additional costs are there?
In addition to rent, tenants are required to choose from one of our three telephony packages that most suits their needs. Our phone packages are all on a rolling monthly contract to end at the end of a calendar month. Price includes line rental and handset rental.
The packages are:
- Bronze – 1 hour of calls included per month* – £20 per month plus VAT
- Silver – 3 hour calls included per month* – £25 per month plus VAT
- Gold – unlimited calls* – £40 per month plus VAT
- Eve APP +£5 per app per month plus VAT (only one app per line)
*Only local/national/ mobile included, additional charge for international and premium numbers.
*Additional charge is 0.05ppm after the inclusive minutes have expire
