Half question but also half "let's see what other small business people are thinking/doing"! My company rents three small offices in an enterprise centre. Because the council refused to treat them as one hereditament we don't qualify for SBRR so we're basically paying £2000/mo rent + rates for glorified desk and bookcase storage For a month or two, that's fine, but I've been seeing some reports (e.g. in Telegraph today - can't link, sorry) that working from home if at all possible may continue to be strongly encouraged for "months/years".. so could be quite a while! We're on a rolling month-to-month lease and we've adapted surprisingly well to working from home, so I'm thinking of just ditching the offices, stop paying rent and rates, and we could give employees £100 a month extra, say, towards the extra electricity/gas. Has the lockdown sent me loopy or is anyone else thinking along these lines for the future? Am I missing any obvious downsides in this plan? I appreciate it wouldn't suit many types of business, but for those that are entirely office based, I could see this taking off once people realise how much running an office actually costs and how little we get for our rates (and if Tesco doesn't have to pay any, I'd rather not either, TBH).
