Services Office

1What are serviced offices? Why use a serviced office?

Corporate Serviced Offices provide users with a complete, professional office environment and all the facilities and services necessary to operate a business, for a low fixed monthly fee. These include a prestigious CBD address, reception with call answering services, fully furnished, equipped and serviced office suites, advanced telephones, high speed internet, essential office machines, fully stocked pantry, secretarial assistance and IT support services on demand. Being located close to major transport hubs, it’s as easy as walk-in, plug-in and start work.

Unlike traditional offices, you immediately reap savings by eliminating the time and cost needed to secure a fixed lease, renovate the space, buy your own furniture, hire your own staff, install your own office machines and telephone / Internet access.

2What are Corporate Serviced Offices lease terms? How quickly can I start using office space?

Corporate Serviced Offices' workspaces are available for rent from as short as one hour to as long as 12 months, and can be renewed indefinitely. Our simple two-page licence agreements do not require complex negotiations with legal representation and do not attract stamp duties, with resultant substantial cost savings. And if you need to upsize, downsize or relocate, all you need is to simply give us one month’s advance notice.

Signing up is simple – simply walk in, select the office suite you like, sign our license agreement and place a two-month security deposit together with your first month's rental, and you can start work immediately. Your phones can be activated within an hour. What could be easier!

3Where are you located?
Corporate Serviced Offices is located in Raffles Place, the most prominent part of the Central Business District in Singapore. We are just 2 minutes walk from Raffles Place MRT Station, with convenient access to all major local and international banks, postal agents, Government offices, restaurants, clinics and all the other services and facilities needed to operate business.
4What size of offices do you offer?
Our workspaces range from 1-2 person office suites to open-plan team offices capable of seating 4-6 persons. In addition, as our units are modular, it is possible to take a number of adjoining offices together to accommodate even larger groups of people, providing unlimited expandability.
5How much do your serviced offices cost?
We have different room types to cater to your exact requirements, depending on the number of staff, the equipment you need and the length of time you'd like to stay. All office suites come inclusive of building fees, water rates, electricity and heating / air conditioning, building and plant maintenance, redecoration, cleaning, reception staff, furniture, etc so there’re no hidden extras. Rates start from $1,000 per month but do contact us for a detailed quote.
6What if my office space requirements change?
No problem - unlike traditional leases which lock you into a fixed space, clients of Corporate Serviced Offices can simply upsize or downsize your space requirements according to your needs within the business centre, with no penalties.
