The key lesson from the Carillion crash? CASH FLOW, CASH FLOW, CASH FLOW

The P&L account is interesting, the balance sheet is terribly important, but the life-blood of the business - big or small - is cash flow. Can I pay next months wages, suppliers, rent? Future promises of plenty are worth nothing if I can’t pay for today.

Which is why wise companies try to match the timing of their income with the timing of their liabilities. Many businesses with lumpy revenue streams or facing uncertainty - be it regulation, consumer confidence, interest rates, technology and more - will also search for ways to match the variability in the revenues to their financial liabilities.

One major area is property costs. Conventional long term leases, upward only rent reviews, exorbitant rent deposits are immovable millstones that threaten any business facing a bump in the road or lack of certainty.

Which is not an issue for any of the 90-plus small businesses who rent desks from Le Bureau, the boutique co-working space in Battersea, South West London. With no deposit, no lease, and only 7 working days notice required, they breathe easily knowing they can upsize or downsize in an instant - and stay within their Cash Flow.

Sound attractive? Come and take a look at what we offer - hear the experiences of other entrepreneurs, able to concentrate on building their business, not fighting off their creditors.

We’d love to show you around!

All serviced offices are the same - right? WRONG!!!!

Are you considering taking some office space? Maybe a serviced office? Maybe a stand alone office? Maybe a co-working space?

Take a good, detailed look before you plunge in - there are VERY different options out there.

Two criteria should weigh heavily in your thinking - cost and atmosphere.

Figure out, in detail, what costs are included, and what the hidden extras are - most operators have lots! And try to get a sense of what it’s like to spend hours in the place - is it sociable or is it lonely?

Here at Le Bureau, the boutique co-working space in Battersea, South West London, we rent desks to small businesses. With no deposit, no contract, and no hassle, we charge a low monthly rate per desk - and that includes free use of meeting rooms, high speed broadband, printing, teas/coffees, visitor parking and much more. ABSOLUTELY NO EXTRA CHARGES. NONE!!

Which is in part why we host some 200 energetic people who comprise some 90-plus entrepreneurial small businesses. They made a considered, rational financial decision.

But they also made an emotional decision - coming to Le Bureau is not solitary confinement. Whether it is the events we put on each month, or the parties we organise, or simply the friendships and networking that develop over the coffee machine, Le Bureau provides the stimulation most of us crave. It’s a powerful draw!

Don’t take our word for it - come and have a look! We’d love to show you around.

How come NEXT thrives while other clothes retailers founder?

Why do some businesses flourish when all around them their competitors falter?

In NEXT’s case it appears they have nimbly moved with the times - and ahead of the pack - in developing their on-line business. They’ve seen the future, they’ve adapted, they’ve reaped the advantage.

For many businesses, the biggest millstone is property - long inflexible leases, high fixed rents, rent deposits, stamp duty, business rates, insurances, utilities and much more. Or at least it used to be. The world of commercial property is changing fast. And here at Le Bureau, the boutique co-working space in Battersea, South West London, we are helping to lead that change.

No deposit, no lease, no contract - no millstone. Simply a low fixed monthly charge per desk rented - with meeting rooms, broadband, printing, teas/coffees, visitor parking and a great atmosphere included for no extra cost.

No wonder some 90-plus thriving small businesses have chosen to base themselves here. Like NEXT, they have seen the future, and they are making the most of it!

Salut Tony Mascolo!

Son of an immigrant, he transformed hairdressing in London, slowly building from one salon in Clapham over 50 years to become a hugely successful, valuable international franchise brand. He did so with his family, with patience and with flair. What a wonderful story.

Here at Le Bureau, the boutique co-working space in Battersea, we hope that we and the 90-plus small businesses that base themselves with us can learn from the Mascolo success.

Where will your business be in 10 years?

Travelled to airport today by Uber. Flew lo-cost airline to hotel which was booked on-line. Wrote this on a tiny laptop while listening to music blue-toothed from smartphone to wireless headphones. Not much of this was around 10 years ago!! Just think of the industries hugely disrupted in the journey to today - black cabs? full-service airlines? travel agents? pencil/paper/fax machine? Sony Walkman? Oh, and no cash was used - even to buy that overpriced red wine (see through, by the way) on the plane.

The pace of change is relentless.

And so it is in the world of office accommodation. Gone are the days when a small firm needed to sign a long inflexible lease commitment, kiss goodbye to a large deposit, buy furniture, open accounts for electricity and telephone, pay service charges and business rates, buy printers, and give months or years of notice if circumstances change.

At Le Bureau, the boutique co-working space in Battersea, South West London we enable our 90-plus small businesses to get up and running with desks, meeting rooms, high speed broadband, teas/coffees, visitor parking, and much more - with no scary lease, no deposit, no hassle!! They pay a low fixed monthly charge, in advance, with absolutely no extra charges. And have only to give 7 days notice if they need to be elsewhere.

Complete flexibility and very low charges. Nothing holding you back as you forge your future!

Come and take a look - we’d love to show you around.
