Doing business and investing in an SME unit

Tens of thousands of startups are being created every year. This brisk business environment fosters employment, economic growth and a healthy economic climate. Many startups in today's online-oriented world no longer need a physical workplace, but this is still the exception rather than the rule. For SMEs that do need a physical workplace but not a whole office building or warehouse, the SME unit provides the perfect solution.

Leasing an SME unit as entrepreneur

SME units consists of smaller business premises that are grouped together in a park. The dimensions and facilities may vary greatly per park, but most SME units are characterised by co-ownership, whereby common expenses and facilities can be shared. There is often a strong sense of community among the entrepreneurs, whereby the companies can reinforce each other and even generate business for each other. An SME unit therefore offers numerous advantages for a startup entrepreneur and optimally exploits the available space.

Investing in an SME unit

An SME unit is also a particularly interesting investment. Smaller buildings that are located on their own plot or with outdoor storage space, are difficult to find. They are, however, in great demand, as are SME units with a limited surface area. You can either buy a separate SME unit or purchase a complete structure to subsequently rent out the units individually. For advice you can always contact your specialist real estate agent, Oreon Properties.

Buying an SME unit: what elements should I consider?

If you want to offer an SME unit for rent, there are a few important aspects to keep in mind. When buying a complete newly built SME unit, for example, the price tag will usually be higher than just the construction costs. Both the investor and the end user must also bear in mind the operating costs and common area expenses. Specifically for investors, the business activities that will eventually be undertaken at the SME unit have an impact on the return: for goods storage or production, for example, different regulations apply as to whether VAT can be charged or not.
