Some of the key elements in an SME's expansion plans will involve opening new branch offices, accessing different markets and facilitating access to fresh commercial hubs. One of the key challenges, though, is that this expansion will so often necessitate taking on board an expensive raft of fixed costs – not to mention facing a daily round of infrastructure and set-up challenges.
One of the classic constraints of a traditional leased office is that it ties up your resources at the very time when you may need them most. It can become a dangerously high fixed cost that drains cashflow and sucks the life out of an otherwise promising venture.
