4 Tips For Choosing An Office Space For Your Tax Filing Business

by Fernando Moore

There are certain businesses that thrive during specific times of the year. If you are an accountant that specializes in tax filing, you may want to consider renting an office space to use during tax season to boost your income. It is important to take your time when choosing the right office space to rent, though. The following guide walks you through a few things to take into consideration when renting an office space for your tax filing company.

Consider the Size

You need to consider how much space you really need to have in order to run your business. If you will be working on your own, you will not need a ton of space. Having a business that is in a shopping center or mall may make your business seem more substantial to potential clients though. If you plan to have other people help you out with the business, be sure that you have enough space in the office space to situate cubicles in the space to give clients the privacy they need while they are filing their taxes.

Consider the Accommodations

When you are running a business, you are often required by law to have bathrooms available for clients to use. Be sure that the office space you choose has at least one working bathroom in it so that you can have the necessary accommodations your clients need.

Consider the Location

You want to rent an office space that is located in an area that people can find easily, that is accessible by bus, car, or walking, and that is safe. You will have a lot of money on hand from people paying for the bill to have their taxes done. You need to be sure that you and any employees working at the office will be safe and not have to worry about being robbed. The safer the area you can find for the office, the better it will be for everyone.

Consider the Length of the Lease

You will only need to rent the space for a few months at a time. Be sure to have the exact dates set up in the lease agreement to ensure that you are not paying for any more time in the office space than you need. When the tax season is over, you can store all of your office equipment in a storage unit to use the following year.

If you choose to open a temporary tax office, you need to be sure that you properly promote the location of the business. Ask if you can hang banners outside of the business. Also, take the time to hand out flyers and promote your business in the paper. Real estate agents have numerous listings that they can show once you have the perimeters of your rental needs in place. Inform them of every detail that is crucial to your business and they can start hunting for the right property immediately for you.
