Hot desking makes access to professional office space affordable. Most hot desking contracts are flexible, usually in the form of a rolling monthly contract, but you can also rent a desk by the day, like a day gym pass. There is now a lot of affordable hot desk space within the major cities as well as towns so there are options aplenty. You can grab great value desk space at plenty of central co-working spaces — just search by your specific budget and location on Flexify.
The majority of hot desking spaces that we see in the market range from £75 – £250 per month (outside London). This fee is typically an ‘all inclusive’ fee which includes business rates, heating, lighting, power and broadband.
By comparison, a fully serviced office outside of London can cost anywhere from £150 to £500 per desk/ month. With traditional office space however you typically need to add on the cost of rates, heating and lighting to that too, so the cost of conventional space can be far more expensive compared to hot desking.
It is important to know and understand what is included in your monthly rental though, as some part time office space might not come with a fixed phone line or meeting room access as part of the deal and offer these as add-ons at an extra cost. Other workspaces will offer you a more comprehensive package which could include the aforementioned plus the use of computer and printer facilities.
