Alternative solutions for business accommodation


There are many advantages for running a business from home, such as savings on travel time and costs and being able to set the costs of the accommodation against tax.


Extensions and adaptations to existing dwellings or premises

  • Increases the value of the estate and custom-designed to provide a permanent new space
  • Not always feasible and can be expensive, disruptive and needing planning permission
  • Not all businesses are permitted to operate from home

Garden buildings

  • Attractive option if you have a large garden and planning permission is not usually required
  • Requires maintenance and may require special insulation for permanent use

Serviced offices and workshops

  • Professional, flexible, serviced accommodation with no start-up costs
  • Rents can be expensive and options are limited 
  • Involves travel time

Converted shipping containers

  • Designed for cargo, not for business use – have to be substantially adapted to provide permanent business or staff accommodation
  • Self-build, on-site projects vulnerable to weather and site conditions

MAC purpose-built container homes: the automatic choice
