Need a base in the north of England? Look no further than Leeds! This northern powerhouse has lots going for it, and with its economy predicted to rise by 21% over the next decade, there’s never been a better time to invest in a Leeds virtual office – giving you a business address in the UK’s fastest-growing city.

The city that gave us Marks & Spencer, the earliest commercial railway and Jeremy Paxman is the UK’s largest financial and legal hub outside London, and it’s fair to say the city is thriving. Leeds has the UK’s most diverse economy, so it’s easy to see why companies including Channel 4, KPMG, Direct Line and BT are among the big names located here.

Leeds’ central location in the north of England means it’s also close to other major business hubs, including Manchester and Sheffield, and it’s well connected to the rest of the country by road, rail and air. With fibre broadband and 5G coming along nicely thanks to continued investment in the region, connectivity won’t be a concern to a business looking to base here.

 

Support and advice for businesses in Leeds

Whether your business is a brand-new start-up or a 20-year-old SME, there’s plenty of support available when you base yourself in Leeds. To keep things simple, it’s accessed via a single point of contact: the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

To date, the LEP has offered advice to over 15,000 businesses via its expert ‘Growth Managers’, as well as having invested £66 million in over 6,600 projects. There’s more investing in Leeds advice at Invest Leeds City Region if you’d like a slice of the pie.

 

Living and working in Leeds

Sandwiched between the Peak District to the south and the Yorkshire Dales to the north, Leeds is a great place to live as well as work. Its popular Roundhay Park offers an immediate escape from the bustle of city life, but it doesn’t take long to get out into Brontë country either.

Leeds has a compact city centre that makes a central location especially rewarding if you’re looking to grow your business in the north. The good news is that such a location is easily within your grasp with our Leeds virtual offices, of which we have three prestigious buildings for you to take your pick from.

Whichever you choose for your business, you’ll have the same great benefits at your disposal: your own Leeds city centre business address, meeting rooms you can use when you need to meet clients or customers face-to-face, and so much more. Even better, by choosing a virtual office, you’ll free up capital to invest in helping your business thrive.
