The decision to relocate a business should not be taken lightly. Apart from the upheaval and the risk that the decision to move is wrong, there is a multitude of arrangements to be made to facilitate the move. These include hiring professional removalists and even interstate removalists to help you plan and carry out the move when it happens.
However, before you get anywhere close to that point, the decision to relocate your business needs considered thought. Whilst a move might seem to be the right thing to do, it should not be done on a whim, or simply because the offices you are considering “look nicer”. Being in fantastic looking business premises is desirable, but that should not be the driving force behind your decision.
The decision comes in three stages. The first is to identify what positive reasons you have for relocating. Next should be considering what impact the move will have on a range of matters. Finally, if you edge towards deciding to move, confirm the needs of your business will be met by the location and premises you choose.
Reasons For Relocation
No two businesses will ever have the exact same reasons for relocating so we are not going to prescribe what yours should be. Instead, here is a list of the main reason that can justify relocating.
Commercial disputes can be time consuming, costly and damaging to the long term reputation and success of your business. If it comes to it, commercial disputes can be resolved in a court of law with the aid of commercial lawyers. However, there are better ways to resolve disputes if you’re willing to be reasonable and talk things through with the other party.
Alternative dispute resolution, or ADR, is a method of dealing with commercial issues without going through the courts. They usually involve the use of a third party (such as a decent lawyer) who will act as the go between for you and the other party involved in the dispute. If problems can be worked out using ADR, you will probably save yourself money, time and a lot of bad press.
What Types Of ADR Are There?
There are a number of different types of alternative dispute resolution that can be used according to your circumstances. In some cases, more than one type of ADR can be used. The most common methods in Australia include:
Mediation – Commercial dispute mediation involves the used of an impartial third party mediator who can work with both parties without vested interests. A mediator’s job is not to make agreements or discuss terms with both parties, but to act as a go between and to facilitate discussion.
If you are starting an online business one of the first tasks you will need to complete is choosing a web hosting company for your website. The hardest part of this process is the fact there are so many hosting companies to choose from, and it can become confusing comparing all of them in order to select the one that is right for you.
To help you make that decision here are seven features which you want to ensure are available and up to the standards you would expect any reputable hosting company to offer.
You will often find hosting packages that only allow one or two domains to be hosted on your account. Even if at this point you don’t think you will ever need another domain, as your business expands it could be that you do. The wise move is to have a hosting package which allows you to host unlimited numbers of domains.
