For a conventional office space, you’d be paying rent for the area occupied by you or your team. A shared office space is much more suitable for freelancers or businesses with a very small team. Office sharing is a concept that allows companies who own or manage an office, that have redundant office space to share or rent the workstations to smaller companies looking for flexible workspace. The leases on these types of offices are generally six to 12 months, with some offering three-month options.
