Last year over 650,000 new companies were formed, a record for the UK. This is great news for the economy and quite rightly some credit should go to the increasing amount of support in place for start-ups with local accelerator programmes and incubators now common place. However, support for transforming your business from start-up to scale-up is not always so readily available and in particular long term or ‘patient’ assistance is thin on the ground.

Starting and growing a business is never easy.  As well as a business model that works, it requires hard work, great determination and an ability to bounce back when things go wrong.

Often there is a temptation to dismiss renting as an option for your business because it is seen as "throwing good money away". Sometimes, buying is the best option, but it is always sensible to take a step back in such circumstances and consider some of the advantages of renting instead.
