When you run a business that is doing well there is often a point where a small office space becomes a problem. It no longer meets your need, people are placed too close together, there is nowhere you can take clients for meetings or give a presentation, not enough desks for people working there.

This is a strong indication you need to look for a new corporate office in Kolkata. You just need to decide what type of office space you think would work better. Do you want to find and buy a conventional office space, a shell that you then work on, or do you want to lease a service office space, one that is furnished and ready to go?

Conventional offices

When you are considering purchasing an office space in Kolkata you might think first of all about a conventional space. Somewhere you want to be long-term that is the right layout for you but that you move your things into and turn into your own.

It might be a whole property and you might rent out some of the space if you do not need it all. It is more cost-effective if you are going to be in the same place for a longer time and is an investment rather than just handing over rent money for serviced space.

It tends to work out best for businesses that have more than a handful of employees where your business has grown and you are ready for that next step up in commitment.

Serviced office space

This kind of corporate office in Kolkata is basically a type of rental option where as well as renting the office space, you can rent equipment, desks, communications, and so on. Some have their own offices but might lease a meeting room for an hour per day in a serviced office space, and some might lease the who thing.

You might choose to rent for a short time period or longer. In general, a good service office space might offer some or all of the following;

  • Kitchen for employees to use
  • Reception area with telephones and such
  • Offices that are partially or fully furnished
  • Access to fast internet
  • Cat 5 cabling
  • Photocopying and fax machines
  • Cleaning service
  • Boardrooms and conference rooms
  • Mail ordering and collection
  • Car parking

Choosing service offices is an easy and convenient solution if you are in need of office space in Kolkata. It is also something that is easy to walk away from if you decide to buy or things change in what you need for your business. You do not have overhead costs, you do not need a large sum as a downpayment and there are far fewer unexpected costs.


Whether you look for serviced or conventional office space depends on the money you have, where your business is in terms of size and growth, and what short and long-term plans you have. Talking to a commercial real estate agent could be a good way to learn more.
