Moving your home based business to a new office is an exciting event and an exciting milestone for your business. When a person starts a small business from home, their ultimate goal is to move the business to an office, hire staff and turn it in to a fully functional, profit making business. If you are at this point, then you should be extremely proud of yourself. It is important however for you to think about the things that will have to be done once you move to your new office because it will be very different compared to running the business alone from the comfort of your own home. As a single person running your own business, there is no doubt that you made various sacrifices and worked in difficult conditions in order to make your business a success but when you hire outsiders, strangers to work for your business, you cannot expect them to make those same sacrifices.
You will have to invest money in creating a comfortable environment for them within the office and this too will cost money and require you to invest money. It is vital that you take time to make calculations and set a budget for your move before you take the plunge because you do not want your currently successful business to fail because you decided to move too fast. You will invest in high end office furniture, commercial air conditioning installation and good facilities for your staff and much more.
Analyze your profits and set a budget
You will need to analyze the accounts of your current business and find out exactly how much of profit you make every month and how much of that profit you can invest in your move to a new office. You will also simultaneously need to find out the cost of furniture, rental fees, rental deposit, aircon installation and all the other costs that you will have at the new office and find out if you will be able to sustain the business for the first few months on the profit that you are currently earning. Keep in mind that although you are looking at expanding and better money coming in, you cannot depend on this one hundred percent in the first few months and therefore, it is vital that you have enough money on hand to be able to manage and sustain the office including staff salaries until your business is able to take off and start making more profits at the new office.
