1.Commercial office buildings are classified into different grades. Finding your ideal office is very easy!

Are you struggling to find the ideal commercial office building? Offices are often classified into different grades based on factors such as building age, size, and location. In this article, URHOUSE will break down the various office grades , guide you on how to choose an office and lastly, share the current office rental market situation with you! 

(1)The grading system for office buildings

The evaluation criteria for office buildings in Taipei and New Taipei City include various factors such as building age, floor area, location, ease of public transportation, etc. Each factor is rated on a scale of 1 to 5 points."

The top-tier offices not only need to be relatively new (within approximately 5 years) and well-located but also needs to be close to MRT stations. As for the total floor area, it should be around thousands of square meters, with individual units exceeding 300 square meters. These are important indicators for top-tier offices.

 2.How do you choose the right office? 4 Key points!

After understanding the classification of offices, the next step is to explore the 4 key points in choosing commercial offices for rent. Renting a well-equipped office building is essential for creating a conducive environment and ultimately enhancing work efficiency!

Prime Downtown Area

If, after evaluation, your budget is relatively sufficient, it is highly recommended to rent in the central financial and business districts. This not only enhances the brand and corporate image but also provides greater security for the company!

Moreover, services such as banks for handling company transactions, post offices for mailing letters and packages, and restaurants for lunch breaks for employees, are all concentrated in the city center, making it very convenient for both the company and its employees.

Ease Of Transportation

Why is it important for a company to be in a convenient location for transportation? Just imagine if employees have to walk more than 15 minutes from the metro station to the office every day – it would be a very strenuous task for them. Choosing an office space near metro stations, high-speed rail stations, highways, and airports can significantly reduce the commuting time for employees and greatly enhance productivity at work.

Strict Management Services

Many office buildings have open access, meaning that strangers could potentially enter your company freely. Consequently, the security and privacy of both the company and its employees are less assured. If the building has a strict management system to screen unfamiliar visitors, the level of privacy and security for employees and the company can be significantly enhanced.

Does the office space meet its building codes and other regulations?

Some offices, in order to increase rentable space, often reduce hallways and common areas. However, such practices may result in insufficient emergency evacuation space and may even violate fire regulations. Therefore, it is recommended that when leasing office space, one should thoroughly observe and compare options. Try to find spaces where the ratio of office area to common area is balanced, and ensure that the building's emergency evacuation space complies with regulations.

What are the precautions for renting an office space? 4 details that can not be ignored!

The pricing of most office spaces not only includes the cost of the office area but also covers the expenses for various facilities. Therefore, if you are renting an office for the first time, it is crucial to understand what items are included in the rent before signing the lease.

However, besides paying attention to the rent, there are many other small details to consider when renting an office. Below, UR HOUSE will list 4 points to note when renting an office, helping you reduce the chances of selecting an unsuitable property!

Additional Costs On Top Of The Rent

It is important to understand if there are any hidden costs such as:

  • Building management fees / Common electricity fees
  • Renovation costs
  • Renovation deposit 
  • Utilities, Internet, cleaning fees 
  • Common area and pantry room 

It is important to gather more information and allocate the overall costs to calculate the monthly rent more accurately. This way, you can pinpoint your true leasing budget!

Office Air Conditioning and Toilet Facilities

Generally, office spaces have three types of air conditioning configurations: central air conditioning, central air conditioning with the option to install independent air conditioning, and fully equipped with independent air conditioning. Most office buildings have restrictions on the operating hours of the air conditioning. If your company often requires overtime or has different working hours from other offices, it is recommended to choose an office with the option to install independent air conditioning. 

In addition to air conditioning, you also need to consider whether you want the bathroom to be inside the office or in a public area. Unless the company hires cleaning staff, if the bathroom is within the office space, employees will need to clean it themselves.

✨Reminder: When renting an office, remember to include "air conditioning installation costs" and "overtime air conditioning costs" in the evaluation of the office rent!

Does the office space meet its building codes and other regulations?

Most offices do not encounter legal problems in their use, however, it is important to note whether the office is located in a special land use zone, such as an industrial zone.

UR HOUSE will assist each client in paying attention to relevant regulations, and remind all tenants to have a CPA double check the legal qualifications before signing the contract.

Typically, a CPA will use the Taipei City government's online pre-check system to inquire whether the industry type is in line with the land use zoning and use purpose of the leased property. It is important to note that you need to prepare a second class housing transcript to complete the submission smoothly.

Company registration inquiries 

When renting an office space, it is usually necessary to complete company registration. Before registration, there are several points that need to be confirmed in advance:

  1. Is it for personal use, company use, or for preparation purposes?
  2. Differences in tax amounts.
  3. How long does company registration take?
  4. If it falls under the category of a clinic (subject to the jurisdiction of the Health Bureau), is there anything that you will need to pay special attention to?  

Confirming these details in advance will make the entire process of renting an office space smoother!
